Three rockets have made a direct hit on the US embassy in Baghdad, global news agency AFP has reported.

A US official told CNN one rocket hit a dining facility on the compound of the embassy on Sunday.

The official said at this early stage there are reports of minor damage.

Neither the Pentagon nor the State Department has made public any reports of injuries. They have not returned requests from CNN for comment on the incident.

Adil Abdul Mahdi, the prime minister of Iraq, condemned the attack and said Iraqi forces have been ordered to “deploy, search, and investigate to prevent the recurrence of such attacks, and to arrest those who launched these rockets so that they can be punished.”

The prime minister said the Iraqi government is “committed to protecting all diplomatic missions and taking all necessary measures to achieve this.”

    Murderer of Soleimani Killed in US Plane Downing in Afghanistan

    Russian intelligence sources have confirmed that Michael D’ Andrea, the head of US intelligence operations against Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan, has been killed in Taliban’s shoot-down of a US military plane in Ghazni.
    The downed plane was the mobile CIA command for Michael D’ Andrea, and now, America’s most advanced spy platform and mobile command centre with all equipment and documents are in Taliban’s hands.
    De Andrea, who was responsible for the assassination of Iran’s top commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, was apparently among the officers on board the plane, the Veterans Today website reports, quoting Russian intelligence sources.

    “There has been further confirmation for the above report. While it is still unclear who was aboard the Bombardier/Northrop Grumman E-11A, the Daily Mirror is reporting that Afghan government forces and the Taliban have clashed in the area as rescue/recovery teams strove to reach the crash site, which is in Taliban controlled territory.”
