Two rockets hit the Green Zone in Iraq’s capital of Baghdad a day after Tehran launched ballistic missiles at Iraqi bases housing American and other coalition forces, in retaliation for the killing of its top general Qasem Soleimani, according to reports on Wednesday.

The Iraqi military said in a statement that two Katyusha rockets fell inside the Green Zone, causing no casualties.

Reuters reported that at least one rocket landed close to the US embassy.
