Foreign diplomats were rudely awakened to a pair of rockets that narrowly missed the US Embassy in Baghdad earlier this week. The strike happened overnight and thankfully there were no casualties.
No one has yet claimed responsibility for this attack.

While other areas of Baghdad have loosened their security infrastructure, the US Embassy is currently one of the most secure areas in the city. Baghdad has attempted to be a mediator between the US and Iran ever since America withdrew from the Obama-era nuclear agreement. This has placed Iraq in a difficult position, and this most recent attack is a reflection of the nation’s current predicament.
Investigations are still underway, though the culprit may take responsibility for the strike before experts finish their assessment. We’ll keep you updated.
