Iranian-backed Militias Behind Rocket Attack on Baghdad’s Green Zone: US

Washington has accused the Iranian-backed militia forces in Iraq for carrying out the Katyusha rocket attack on Baghdad’s Green Zone last week.

The accusation was made by US Vice Admiral Michael Gilday, the director of the Joint Staff, on Friday.

The attack was carried out last Sunday. The rocket reportedly fell half a kilometer away from the US embassy in the fortified international zone.

Gilday also said they have evidence that prove Iran being “directly” involved in the attacks on tankers off the United Arab Emirates earlier this month.

“The attack against the shipping in Fujairah, we attribute it to the IRGC,” Gilday said without providing proofs. Source
