ICBPS MORNING BRIEF: Rockets Hit Near U.S. Embassy In Iraq

ICBPS Morning Brief– At least three Katyusha rockets landed in Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone in an attack targeting the U.S. Embassy on Sunday night, according to Iraqi security sources.

In a Twitter brief statement, the U.S. Embassy confirms “rockets targeting the International Zone resulted in the engagement of Embassy defensive systems. There was some minor damage on the Embassy compound but no injuries or casualties”.

“We have received reports of damage to residential areas near the U.S. Embassy and possibly some injuries to innocent Iraqi civilians. As we have said many times these sorts of attacks on diplomatic facilities are a violation of international law and are a direct assault on the sovereignty of the Iraqi government. We call on all Iraqi political and governmental leaders to take steps to prevent such attacks and hold accountable those responsible.”
