Iraqs joint operations command released a statement Thursday that Baghdads green zone and jadriya District, as well as the baylad Air Force Base in Salah DIN Province, were attacked by multiple shells that night, but no casualties were caused. The statement provided no further details.

A security official in Salah DIN province told Xinhua that three mortar shells hit the Iraqi military warehouse at baylad Air Force Base on the night of the 4th, with no casualties.

At present, no organization or individual has claimed to have made an attack.

The green zone is located in the center of Baghdad. It is the seat of Iraqi government agencies and American and British embassies in Iraq. Baylad air force base is located 80 kilometers north of Baghdad, with US troops stationed.

At least eight people, including Qasim Sulaimani, commander of Irans Islamic Revolutionary Guards Holy City Brigade, were killed Wednesday when the United States launched a rocket attack on Baghdad International Airport. After the attack, the U.S. Embassy in Iraq announced its closure and urged all U.S. citizens to leave Iraq immediately.
