MOSCOW (Pakistan Point News / Sputnik - 29th July, 2021) Baghdad's district housing the US embassy came under missile fire on Thursday, Iraqi news agency Shafaq reported, citing a security source.

Two missiles were fired from a Katyusha multiple launch rocket system, according to the source. The C-RAM air defense system was unable to deflect the missiles to a sufficient distance, and debris fell on a car and a house in the Al-Mansour district.
