One Iraqi security official said they had heard two rockets. The second said fundamental discoveries showed it had been a robot assault and a trailer having a place with the alliance was set ablaze by the assault. There were no losses, they said. 

The authorities talked on state of namelessness since they were not approved to brief the media. 

There was no prompt case of duty regarding the strikes, however U.S. authorities have recently accused Iran-upheld Iraqi local army groups for such attacks. 

The assaults are the most recent in a string that keep on focusing on the U.S. presence in Iraq. Over twelve have designated Iraqi army installations and Baghdad's exceptionally braced Green Zone since US President Joe Biden expected office this year. In excess of 10 individuals have been slaughtered, including two unfamiliar workers for hire.
