Two rockets have landed inside the heavily fortified Green Zone in Baghdad, home of the US Embassy in Iraq.

CNN reports that the Iraqi joint military command says “two Katyusha rockets landed inside the Green Zone in Baghdad.

There are no reports of casualties.

The incident took place just after midnight local time.

The rockets landed a day after Iran fired more than a dozen missiles at Iraqi bases housing US troops. The attack on Tuesday from Iran did not cause any US or Iraqi casualties.

The Green Zone is an area of Iraq's capital city where the embassies for the US and several other western countries are located.
