Military News

Video footage shows a C-RAM system responding to a rocket attack on the US embassy in the Green Zone of Baghdad. “The U.S. Embassy compound was attacked this evening by groups attempting to undermine Iraq’s security, sovereignty, and international relations,” the embassy said in a statement. “We have long said that these sorts of reprehensible attacks are an assault not just on diplomatic facilities but on the sovereignty of Iraq itself,” the embassy added in the tweeted statement.

The Iraqi military said “a cowardly act” targeted “innocent residents of the Green Zone in Baghdad and the headquarters of the diplomatic missions.” Several missiles were launched from the Dora neighborhood in southern Baghdad, the military said.
