Two rockets hit Baghdad's Green Zone: Iraq military

AFP  |  Baghdad 

Two rockets slammed into the Iraqi capital's Green Zone, the high-security enclave home to government buildings and foreign embassies, early on Thursday, the military said.

An Iraqi security source told AFP the intended target appeared to be the US embassy, a sprawling compound a few hundred meters south of where the rockets hit.

It is the 26th such attack targeting installations where foreign troops or diplomats are based across Iraq since late October.
