As thousands of Iranian took to the streets in Iran’s major cities, chanting “Death to America” in protest against assassination by US forces of Soleimani, Al-Arabiya and other middle east news sources report rockets have landed in the heavily fortified Green Zone in Baghdad, where the US Embassy and other allied organisations are based.
Sky News Arabia reported that the missile landed in the Green Zone in Baghdad forcing the closure of roads leading to the American embassy. Additionally, there are now reports that multiple rockets have struck Balad Airbase, located just north of Baghdad, that hosts US troops and air force personnel.

Other reports say pro Iranian militias in Iraq are attacking US bases with mortar fire. One such attack attack is reportedly underway at the US military base at Al-Kindi in Mosul.
As yer there is no confirmation of any of these reports but it seems certain Iran is mounting a major offensive against US military forces and western civilian operations in Iraq in retribution for the assassination by precision air strike of one of Iran’s most senior commanders.
