BAGHDAD (Dispatches) -- A Katyusha rocket hit an area in Baghdad’s Green Zone, which houses government buildings and foreign missions, including the U.S. embassy, an Iraqi security source said Wednesday.
Reports said the American forces closed the doors of the U.S. embassy following the incident. Anti-American sentiments have been running high in Iraq since the US assassinated Iran’s anti-terror commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, and the deputy head of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, in Baghdad on January 3.
