An Iraq correspondent for the Associated Press, Samya Kullab, tweeted the news, saying that this act signals “an end to informal truce announced by Iran-backed militia in October.”

Kullab also stated that four rockets were launched instead of two and that they were intercepted by the C-RAM missile defense system, with one of the rockets landing 600 meters from the embassy. Additionally, according to Kullab, two Iraqi security forces were wounded, officials have told the AP.
