Sirens sounded from the US Embassy in Iraq’s Baghdad, an Al Arabiya correspondent reported on Wednesday.

For months, the Green Zone, which includes the US embassy in Baghdad, as well as the military bases that host coalition forces, has been subjected to missile strikes and IED attacks, Al Arabiya reported.

Washington has accused Iranian militias in Iraq of being behind the missile attacks on the embassy and Iraqi military bases hosting American soldiers.

In December, multiple Katyusha rockets targeted the US embassy in Iraq’s Green Zone area as tensions rose over the US’ imposition of sanctions on Iran and the one year anniversary of the killing of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Commander, Qassem Soleimani, in early January 2020 in an American strike.
