Four rockets manage to break through the C-RAM defense system, in a heavily fortified area in Baghdad where foreign embassies are housed. According to the Iraqi military, one child was killed in the attack, and five others were wounded including two Iraqi security personnel.
The assault occurred on Tuesday less than an hour after the US released plans to reduce its levels in Iraq from 3000 to 2500.
The Iraqi military said the rockets that landed in the Green Zone, were launched from al-Alf Dar district in New Baghdad, and that the incident would not go without "prosecution and accountability".
