Multiple rockets land near US consulate in Iraq - reports — RT

Several rockets have reportedly struck an area in Erbil, northern Iraq, near a US diplomatic compound. Erbil is the capital of the semi-autonomous Kurdistan region.

Footage shared online purports to show a series of explosions rocking the area. The apparent strike ignited several fires, with smoke can be seen billowing from the scene.

AP reported, citing Iraqi officials, that at least 12 missiles were launched towards the area. They claimed that several missiles struck the American consulate. However, US officials reportedly said that there have been no material damage as result of the attack.

Reports in local media suggested that the rockets damaged the offices of Kurdistan 24 TV station, located near the consulate.

The incident has not resulted in any casualties, Kurdistan’s health minister Saman Barzanji told local media, as cited by Reuters. Politico’s Paul McLeary also reported, citing a US defense official, that there have not been any casualties among American personnel.
