Air defense systems intercept rocket targeting US Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq

Air defense systems in Iraq have intercepted a rocket targeting the US Embassy in Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone, according to Al Arabiya’s correspondent.

A Patriot battery system was able to respond to the rocket but was unable to intercept it far enough and therefore fell within the Green Zone, local media outlet al-Dijla TV reported citing its own security source.
