5 civilians dead, 2 injured in rocket attack in Baghdad

Sep 29, 2020 19:15 IST

5 civilians were killed and multiple were injured in a rocket attack in Baghdad on Monday. Among the dead were three women and two children. Iraqi armed groups fired two Katyusha rockets at a house in Baghdad, though reports say target was Baghdad international airport, where US troops are stationed. The Iraqi military, in a statement accused 'cowardly criminal gangs and groups of outlaws' of seeking to 'create chaos and terrorise people'. The attack is the latest in a string of attacks targeting Americans, after Washington threatened to close its embassy and withdraw its 3,000 troops from the country unless rocket fire stops.
