At least three rockets have hit this Wednesday inside the Green Zone of Baghdad, the fortified part of the Iraqi capital and headquarters of the main foreign embassies and the Ministries of the Government of Iraq.

Sources close to the matter have reported in statements to the Iraqi news agency INA that it involves several Katyusha rockets, one of which has hit an area near the seat of the Iraqi Parliament.

The launch took place hours after Parliament launched a new plenary session in which the majority of deputies have re-elected Muhamed al Halbusi as president of the Chamber after presenting his resignation on Monday due to the lack of consensus politician in the country.
