Several foreign embassies, including the US embassy and other government agencies, are located in the Green Zone.

Earlier, three rockets hit a Baghdad area near the Green Zone without causing any damage, a Iraqi security official said.

“Three rockets in Katyusha have fallen in the Mansur region of Baghdad,” a source, who did not want to be named, told AFP.

The rockets hit near Red Crescent Hospital, a bank and the regional water management department, a source said.
