SULAIMANI — Baghdad Operation Command said on Friday (July 10) that it has prevented a Katyusha rocket attack on the Green Zone in Baghdad, locating a launcher in near al-Qanat Street.

Members of the security forces were able to defuse the rocket.

Attacks using the simple projectiles are widely blamed on militant groups within the Hashd al-Shaabi, also known as the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), particularly those closely aligned with Iran.
