Rockets target US mission in Baghdad’s Green Zone

The US embassy in Baghdad is urging Iraq’s government to protect its personnel, after rockets targeted the diplomatic mission in the city’s high-security Green Zone on Friday.

“We again call on the government of Iraq… to protect diplomatic and coalition partner personnel and facilities,” an embassy spokesperson said in a statement, after “two salvos of rockets” were fired at the mission without causing any reported casualties.

US forces in Iraq and Syria have been repeatedly targeted over the last two months by Iran-backed militias opposed to Israel’s war against Hamas.
