- US-Led Coalition Military Base ‘Impacted’ After Multiple Rockets Fired at Baghdad’s Green Zone
The US-led coalition has confirmed its base in Iraq was hit after the heavily fortified Green Zone came under rocket fire on Saturday night, with multiple blasts reported in the vicinity of the US Embassy.
The US-led coalition says its base in Baghdad was “impacted” by “small rockets” around 3:24am local time. An investigation into the incident is underway, it added. The attack did not result in any casualties, Col. Myles Caggins, spokesman for Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Resolve (CJTF-OIR), stated on Twitter, without providing any details.
The explosions allegedly rocked Union III coalition base which sits just across the street from the diplomatic compound. It is unclear if the attack caused any damage to the facility. Early reports indicated that at least four blasts struck the area, prompting rocket alarms to be activated. Multiple videos have circulated online with air raid sirens blaring in the Iraqi capital early Sunday morning local time.
