Unconfirmed reports suggest that the rounds may have detonated in the area of Gazna, located around 4 km (2.5 mi) north of the airport.
A heightened security presence is to be expected in the vicinity of the incident in the near term, along with localized transport disruptions.
Those in the affected areas 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.
