PMF members wounded in Green Zone attack

Shafaq News/ security and Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) members were injured in the attack on the Green Zone in central Baghdad Tuesday evening. A security source told Shafaq News agency.

At least Four Katyusha rockets landed in Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone, an Iraqi security source said on Tuesday.

“The rockets landed in four locations, near the logistical support headquarters at Al-Zaytoun intersection, the US embassy compound vicinity, the Baghdad police headquarters, and near a National Security Forces site.” the source added.

He said, “Sirens were sounding inside the Green Zone, and the rockets probably target the U.S embassy.”

“The U.S forces launched the patriot missiles in the area.” He added.

The Security Media Cell said in a statement that the rockets "were launched from Al-Amin Al-Thaniyah neighborhood, Al-Alf Dar district in Baghdad."

Washington blames such attacks on Iranian-backed militia groups. Iran has not directly commented on the incidents but little-known groups believed to be connected to Iran-aligned militias have claimed some attacks.
