Two rockets were fired in the green zone in Baghdad after Iran attacked US military bases in Iraq.

Security sources said late on Wednesday that 2 rockets landed in the green zone, where there are foreign embassies, including the US mission, according to a French news agency AFP report.

According to the report, shortly before midnight, a representative of the news agency heard the sound of two major blasts in Baghdad, after which a security siren sounded in the green zone.

The attacks on Iran yesterday were a response to the US airstrike that killed General Qasim Sulaimani and the Iraqi commander Abu Mahdi al-Mohandas, the head of the Quds Force of the Iranian Soldiers Revolution.

The Abu Mahdi al-Mohandas was a deputy head of al-Shahad al-Shabaabi, one of the armed groups in the Iraqi state, while the group also has close ties with Tehran.

It is to be noted here that the US accused Al-Shahad al-Shabi of rocket attacks on the US Embassy in Baghdad and the influx of US troops throughout the country.

In addition, on Wednesday, al-Shahadab al-Shababi said he would avenge the US invasion.

In addition, Paramilitary Chief Qais al-Ghazali, who has been blacklisted by the US as a terrorist, said that Iraq's response to the US would not be 'less than Iran's response'.
