IRAN VS US: Three Rockets Fall Near US Embassy In Iran

Three rockets have fallen inside Baghdad's Green Zone on Tuesday morning, near the US embassy.

A BBC correspondent said alarms were sounding in the US embassy complex and speakers were advising those inside to take cover.

Iraqi police disclosed to Reuters that three Katyusha rockets fell inside the Green Zone, which houses government buildings and foreign missions. The rockets were lunched from the Zafaraniyah region outside Baghdad, the sources stated, including that two rockets landed close to the US embassy.

On the evening of 8 January, two rockets landed in the Green Zone, hours after Iran lunched in excess of twelve missiles at two Iraqi military bases housing US troops.

That rocket salvo was thusly a counter for a US drone strike on 3 January that murdered senior Iranian general Qassem Suleimani in Iraq, bringing about uplifted tension in the region.
