“Two Katyusha rockets landed in the green zone when hitting the area at 01:00 a.m. on Tuesday [22:00 GMT on Monday]. The C-RAM air defence system responded to the attack, and no losses or material damage occurred as a result,” the Security Media Cell said in a statement, as quoted by Al Sumaria.
The rockets were fired from the Ali Saleh district, located in the Iraqi capital, the service added.

Earlier in the day, another Iraqi news agency, Baghdad Today, reported, citing a local security source, that the strike targeted the US embassy.
The Baghdad green zone, which hosts Iraqi government facilities and foreign diplomatic missions, frequently suffers from rocket attacks.
