Unconfirmed media sources stated that three explosions were heard within the Zone. There has yet to be any official confirmation in regards to damage or casualties.
Similar attacks targeting the International Zone are possible in Iraq over the near term.
Individuals in Baghdad are advised to closely monitor the situation, avoid the affected area, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.
