US Military Says ‘Ongoing Situation’ in Iraq Amid Fourth Day of Attacks in a Row

A spokesperson for the U.S.-led coalition has acknowledged to Newsweek reports of what would be the fourth day of attacks on U.S. positions previously mounted by Iraqi militia forces.

“We are aware of these reports,” the U.S.-led coalition told Newsweek. “As this is an ongoing situation, we have no further details at this time.”

The statement came as outlets supportive of militias aligned with the pro-Iran “Axis of Resistance” circulated footage showing defensive systems at the U.S. embassy in Baghdad responding to unseen aerial threats.

The Sabreen News outlet claimed the attackers took a dual approach, launching Katyusha rockets from both the Al-Rusafa area and from the vicinity of Al-Kindi Hospital, though this could be not be independently verified.

If confirmed, the attack would signal yet another sign that Iraqi militias were willing to escalate their campaign to drive out U.S. forces from the country.
