SULAIMANI — Iraq’s Intelligence and Investigative Agency said on Wednesday (January 26) Iraqi security forces seized five rockets that were prepared to target al-Karmah city, northeast of Fallujah.

The agency said the rockets were seized at a location near Thera Dijla Bridge, north of Baghdad, during a search conducted by security forces.

The search came after three rockets were fired last night, which may have been targeting the guesthouse al-Karmah of Iraqi Parliament Speaker Mohammed al-Halbousi.

Mayor Ahmed Mukhlib said two people were injured in the rocket attack.
