SULAIMANI — Iraq’s Security Media Cell said in a statement that a Katyusha rocket fell near the Green Zone in Baghdad early on Wednesday (August 5).

The statement added that the rocket was launched from the Dora neighborhood in southern part of the city.

No casualties were reported.

Attacks using the simple projectiles are widely blamed on militant groups within the Hashd al-Shaabi, also known as the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), particularly those closely aligned with Iran.
