Two Katyusha rockets fell on Baghdad's "green zone" near the US embassy building, the official Security Media Cell reported Thursday
The rockets landed a few hundred meters north of the embassy compound, right outside the Iraqi Armed Forces' Operations Command Headquarters, the cell reported.
This is the latest in an ongoing exchange of fire between various militia in the country and the US-led coalition forces in the country. Earlier this month, two attacks on the coalition's Camp Naji killed two US and one UK soldier and prompted retaliatory strikes against the Iran-backed Kataib Hezbollah militia in the country.
