Iran continues escalation: Rocket attacks in Iraq, a political ultimatum; *UPDATE* Flying-bomb drones launched at Saudi Arabia
The Green Zone in Baghdad, where the U.S. embassy complex is located, was also targeted with a rocket (see thread above). Reportedly, the rocket landed on a building across the street from the embassy.
It isn’t clear at this point whether, or how quickly, harassment of this kind from inside Iraq will escalate. But such attacks, presumably by Iran-backed militia forces in Iraq – using a signature weapon of Iran-backed paramilitary operatives throughout the Middle East – have been rare in spite of verbal threats from Iran over the past year. The Iranian regime is apparently probing now to see how much harassment it can get away with.
