The blast was heard in central Baghdad on Sunday night.

Last week the US State Department ordered non-emergency personnel to leave their Iraq posts.

 

The Jerusalem Post reported:

A rocket was fired in Iraqi capital Baghdad’s heavily-fortified Green Zone, which houses government buildings and foreign embassies, but caused no casualties, the Iraqi military said on Sunday.

A blast was heard in central Baghdad on Sunday night, Reuters witnesses said and two Baghdad-based diplomatic sources also said they heard the blast.
