New Rocket Attack Targeted U.S. Embassy In Iraq’s Baghdad

On July 19, a new rocket attack targeted the U.S. embassy in the Iraqi capital, Bagdad, according to the Xinhua News Agency.

A source in the Iraqi Interior Ministry told the Chinese agency that three “Katyusha” rockets landed near the embassy, in Bagdad’s Green Zone, a fortified area that hosts government buildings and foreign missions.

“There were no immediate reports on casualties,” Xinhua quoted the source as saying.

In the last few months, a series of attacks targeted the U.S. diplomatic mission in Baghdad and American troops in a number of Iraqi bases.

Recently, the U.S. military deployed a C-RAM [Counter-rocket, artillery and mortar] system to protect the Green Zone. It remains unclear if the system was able to intercept any of the rockets which targeted the U.S. embassy today.

Newly formed Iraqi Shiite armed group, such as Usbat al-Tha’ireen, threatened to target the U.S. embassy in Baghdadi on several occasions. One of these groups could be responsible for the new attack.

The U.S. military usually responds to any attack that result in casualties. Today’s attack didn’t result in any losses, thus no escalation is expected.

we know you wish for usa to occupy iraq for your benefit the same way you occupy the palestinians

US occupation of Iraq is primarily based on the exploitation of Iraqi natural resources, the Zionist occupation of Palestine is based on a totally fake historical narrative and is only made possible by massive western taxpayers subsidization. In a way. Iraqi and Arab oil is being used to kill Arabs.

US is illegally occupied Iraq and parts of Syria and increasing resistance is a natural consequence of a brutal occupation and economic plunder of Iraqi natural resources by US and NATO nations. Historically, invaders only withdraw after the cost of occupation become too high. The Zionist fled South Lebanon recently after sustaining high casualties and attrition. Conversely, the occupation of Palestine has only been possible as the Palestinians have yet to unite of resist. However, the Iraqi people have suffered immensely under the worst US occupation and suffered daily atrocities, therefore a strengthening nationwide resistance is guaranteed.

looking forward to the day they actually manage to hit the embassy itself with some humongous missiles erasing it out of existence.
