Initial reports of explosions, alert sirens heard in the vicinity of the US Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq.
This is likely Iran-backed Shia militia 107mm or 122mm rocket fire targeting the Embassy.
Unclear at this time if the Embassy was actually struck.
Moments ago, 3-5 blasts heard around the Green Zone (U.S embassy and other important governmental buildings in Baghdad, Iraq). You can hear the sirens going off at the same time pic.twitter.com/WVioTP1rzR
