BAGHDAD - A Katyusha rocket reportedly fell in central Baghdad's Green Zone on Sunday night, Iraq military personnel announced.
"A Katyusha rocket fell in the middle of the Green Zone without causing any losses or causalties, further details will come later," the military said in a statement.
Is this what the intel said that Iranian militias would try in Iraq?
Supposedly the intel was about multiple attacks, in various places across the Mid East.
Some Tweets saying John Bolton arrived at White House a few minutes ago.

When are the Iranian Revolutionary Guards scheduled to invade the hospitals and start removing babies from incubators? :-P
Saudis man in D.C.?
Shiite Arabs @hlUatp1oASYHf8j 4h4 hours ago More URGENT: Hezbollah snipers occupy the roof of the Babel Hotel building opposite the US Embassy in Baghdad and book all hotel rooms overlooking the Tigris River, which separates the embassy and the staff. Iranian and Lebanese groups arrive in these rooms and they are missing elements of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. 79 replies 185 retweets 180 likes Reply 79 Retweet 185 Like 180
So thats how its done these days? Just have soldiers check into the local hotels? LOL.
Katyusha- did it say Berlin in 45?
Nothing to see here.
If you are aiming for the Green Zone, and you hit the middle of the Green Zone, I’d say that’s pretty good shooting.
I’ve got a buddy working over there in the GZ. I talked to him the other day and he said things were fairly calm with no attacks in a very long time. Some of the noobies have been bringing their vests and helmets to work just in case of an attack. They are in a curfew protocol from 2100 hour to 0500 hour. Baghdad is 11 hours ahead of PST time so the rocket hit at about 2200 hour local time. Fortunately just about everyone would have been sheltering inside due to the curfew.
Almost all of the incoming is indirect fire so it’s launch and pray accuracy.
> Provocation from unknown element(s) seeking a USA confrontation with Iran. <
that would be a good bet to make. The Saudis could be behind this. Or the Israelis. Or Bolton’s friends in the CIA.
Of course, it could really be Iran. But they’d have the least to gain.
Like off the back of a truck?
Or did it impact and explode?
Just damn. Go get someone who knows a little about war, for your war correspondents, why dont ya Reuters?
Just one? The classic method of employment was to park the carriers hub-to-hub and launch blazing volleys of hundreds at a time!
Gotta make that military industrial complex some money!!
Dems need a distraction badly, not Trump.
And armchair warriors need them some TV!!
Leave our boys the #### out of this.
Nothing EVER changes.
Please stay Strong Trump.
Use the air force and navy if you think necessary but no boys on the ground.
Let let not lose their legs and arms and worse over the middle east anymore.
“Provocation from unknown element(s) seeking a USA confrontation with Iran.”
Democrats, Obamaunists, the Muzzie brohood, and Qatar.
Back in 2008 they peaked with around 6-8 rockets per day fired at the Embassy (then in the Republican Palace) from Sadr City.
Iran has a few different options to choose from in Iraq, to get someone to pop a few rockets for them. They could even send their own guys in to do it themselves, if they wanted.
