Rocket Attack Strikes U.S. Embassy

Suleimani’s legacy lives on in Iraq.

BY CALLUM WOOD

Iran-backed Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) in Iraq launched eight rockets at the United States Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq, on Sunday. Despite the activation of the embassy defenses, one housing area was damaged and at least one local civilian was killed.

These attacks in the fortified Green Zone are relatively rare due to the site’s heavy defenses and location in the capital. The fact that forces were able to successfully carry out the attack speaks of an inside job.

The ongoing hostility of PMFs in Iraq and the tacit approval of the Iraqi government are all part of the legacy established by late Iranian Gen. Qassem Suleimani.
