Confirmed information about the rocket fire in the zone of location of the US Embassy in Baghdad


Information on the next missile strike on the so-called “green zone” of the Iraqi capital has found confirmation. We are talking about the use of three missiles, which were fired from the territory of Baghdad itself.


Thus, local media report that the rockets were fired by unknown persons from the Ez-Zaafaraniya region. This is the southeastern part of the Iraqi capital. Missiles exploded near the building of the American Embassy - in the zone of its location. In the US diplomatic mission itself, sirens triggered the shelling.

After the shelling, American military helicopters were lifted into the air.

In the USA, representatives of the Al-Hashd al-Shaabi group were accused of shelling. This is the Shiite militia of Iraq, whose leader (Al-Muhandis) was eliminated by the United States in the early days of the year with a drone strike on a car in which he was with Iranian General Kassem Suleimani. Suleimani then arrived in Baghdad from Syria. Interrogations are being conducted in Iraq regarding the involvement in the transmission of US data about the Suleimani route. Among the interrogated are the crew of the airliner and the airport security service.

At the moment, there is no information about the neutralization of the attackers on the US embassy in Baghdad. It is known that as a result of a missile strike there were no casualties, damage to the complex of buildings.



In connection with the incident, it is entirely possible to assume that this could be not only an attempt at revenge on the part of the Shiite militia of Iraq, but also about provocation of third forces trying to “force” Trump to give a “powerful answer”.

      Water - the stone wears away.
      I think American diplomats and members of their families have not experienced much joy from this action. In vain the United States opened this "Pandora's Box" with the physical elimination of leaders of this level.
      Of course, opponents will not reach the Secretary of State and the President - but at the level of the Ambassadors, Senior Officials and the Military - they will Revenge!

        Perhaps, soon it will become risky for American tourists to visit the Middle East.

          Just the level of those who gave orders - beyond the possibilities of revenge.

              Well, everything is still not clear ... who is it and why ??? Yes, and the US Secret Service (responsible for guarding the President and Senior Government Officials), as it were, are not made with one finger (I think at least the Top Three are included).

                  Lee Harvey Oswald used the Italian Paraviccini rifle - Carcano Cal 6.5 \ 52 mod 1891goda. From Manlicher there was only a store of his system. The erroneous name of the rifle is in almost all documents.

                    He could sit with a slingshot in that warehouse. All the same, he would have been guilty, and all the same he would have suffered the "just punishment of the indignant American people." It hurt his biography was suitable for such a case.

                    As American history as a whole and a number of recent events related to Russia (the Malaysian Boeing, Squeak, etc.) in particular show, in particular, it was not the one who shot it, but the one who should be to blame.

                      Yes, the story with Kennedy has more questions than answers! It remains to wait for 2038, when the signature stamp will be removed from all documents in this case. In the meantime, American Secret Services continue to protect the Secret of the murder of the American President as if the disclosure of documents would strike a blow at American society. hi

                        It seems to me that the blow will not be on American society, but on American intelligence agencies. Therefore, there will be no disclosure of documents for one simple reason - there are none, there is nothing to disclose. Everything has long been cleaned up, corrected. And were they documents? It is now that Americans are not shy about admitting state terrorism at the highest level. Previously, they were more modest - they did everything quietly and hid the ends deeply. And now they have God's dew not only in their eyes - they bathe in it. And nothing...

                        I agree, it is not known what will be preserved there by then ... but on the other hand, is there something that is stored until 2038 ??? This is the date of the official withdrawal of the Vulture of Secrecy!

                        Agree, Alexey - not everything that is stored under different vultures is of interest. And to make a sensation ... Well, they’ll declassify a picture of another fragment of Kennedy’s skull ... Well, at the very least, another shot of how his head is flying apart - from a different angle ... Rehabilitating a silly Oswald who was ideally substituted for the special services is not will be able. And the special services themselves will certainly not reveal anything against themselves. And in 2038, they will forget about the “disclosed” documents an hour after disclosure due to their stupidity.

                        I don’t argue ... only so much time has passed, and there were no reasonable versions of the murder! Americans love conspiracy theories; I don’t think that interest in this topic will fade away. The question really is what they will show ... it remains to survive until 2038 wink

    It seems that someone decided to repeat the “Syrian version” in Iraq, when the Russian embassy was under constant threat of shelling, and now the Americans were taken under the gun. Everything tends to return ...

    This is not the first recent shelling of American targets in Iraq. In particular, on January 14, a military base at Al-Taji was fired at the north of Baghdad, where a contingent from the United States is deployed. Two days earlier, the military base of Balad, where the American contingent is also located, was hit.

    I completely agree with the conclusion of the article. Trump did something stupid. By killing an Iranian general. Now let him try to save his face without starting a war. Anyone could strike. There are more than enough candidates for such an attack.

    Such news will now arrive almost every week. Too many weapons in this region, and too many Americans got there, even their yesterday’s allies. And whatever the Americans do, the situation will only get worse for them.

      this is a subtle hint of leaving Iraq. if they wanted losses among the inhabitants of the embassy, ​​then they would have rolled out pieces of 5 mortars and in 5 minutes would have razed the embassy to the ground. I doubt that Iran can’t get 5 mortars
