According to security sources, at least 2 rockets, of unknown origin, fell near the US embassy in the Green Zone 17 November. The American C-RAM rocket defense system has been activated.
According to local source, several explosions were reported in the center of the capital.
The attack comes on the day Washington announced the withdrawal of around 500 troops from Iraqi territory.
Although the incident has not yet been claimed, Washington attributes it to pro-Iran factions present in the territory. Also, targeted American strikes in retaliation against Iranian auxiliaries cannot be ruled out in the coming days.
Ongoing violence s not excluded.
