At least one round of indirect fire has been reported in the vicinity of the US Embassy in Baghdad's Green Zone on Wednesday, September 16. The incident occurred at 17:09 (local time) and is the latest in a series of attacks on targets linked with the presence of foreign troops in Iraq, which have been attributed to Iranian-backed Shia militias.
Further attacks targeting the International Zone and other targets associated with the presence of foreign troops are expected to continue in the near term.
Those in Baghdad are advised to monitor developments, avoid the affected area, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
The security environment in Iraq remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to all travel.
