At least one person was wounded on Sunday night by a rocket attack on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, the third such attack this month.
Two embassy staffers quoted by the AP said the rocket hit a restaurant inside the embassy compound, which is within the capital’s Green Zone that has been the center of clashes between the U.S. and Iran-backed militias.
It was not clear who launched the rocket, but the United States has blamed Iran-backed militias for targeting U.S. interests in the country.
At least five Katyusha rockets landed in the Green Zone on Sunday, according to a U.S. military statement.
Meanwhile, violent clashes between Iraqi security forces and demonstrators continue, with one protester being shot dead in the south of the country, the report said.
Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi condemned the attack in a statement.
