A series of rockets were fired on Monday at the Green Zone in Baghdad, where, in addition to Iraqi government and other buildings, the U.S. embassy is also located. At least three missiles crashed into the zone, according to AP news agency sources. In a week, this was the third attack on Western interests in Iraq.

At least one rocket hit the National Security Office building near the U.S. Embassy. Several other rockets crashed into residential areas around the highly secured complex, with a parking lot hit in Haritiya. The army said there were no casualties in the attack and the case was being investigated.

On February 15, a missile attack hit a military base near Erbil Airport, the capital of the Iraqi Kurdistan Autonomous Region, where foreign troops from a U.S.-led alliance fighting the Islamic State’s terrorist organization are stationed. In the attack, a civilian entrepreneur working for the alliance was killed and nine others were injured.

Several rocket attacks were also carried out northwest of Erbil, where residential areas were also hit. Five civilians were injured here, one of whom died on Monday. These were the first attacks on Western military and diplomatic facilities in two months. Last year, dozens of attacks attributed to Iran-friendly groups were carried out.

On Saturday, rockets fired at Balad air base north of Baghdad as Iraqi Air Force stored F-16 fighter jets, injuring at least one Iraqi employee of an American aircraft maintenance company. The attack on Erbil was undertaken by a relatively unknown organization, Aulíjaa ed-Dam (Guardians of Blood). The organization said in a statement posted on the Internet that it was preparing for further attacks on U.S. forces stationed in Iraq. (APNews / MTI)
