Arab media reported that a military base at the US embassy in Baghdad was targeted by drones.

Some Iraqi sources reported early Tuesday morning an airstrike on the Green Zone in Baghdad near US buildings.

Sirens went off warning of drone attacks on the US embassy in the Green Zone at Al-Tawheed Base 3, the Saberin News reported.

The source said that a severe attack was carried out on Al-Tawheed Base 3 at the US embassy, adding that the CRAM system was trying to repel a severe attack on the base.

Minutes later, some Arab sources, including Al-Jazeera, reported that the attack was carried out using UAVs and the US embassy’s anti-aircraft systems targeted them.

Saberin News also confirmed that the attack was carried out using an explosive drone, saying that the drone targeted Al-Tawheed Base 3 accurately and US forces closed the military section inside the US embassy.
