The agency’s spokesman, Arshad al-Hakim, told Shafaq News Agency, “The headquarters of the National Security Service was attacked by outlaw groups,” noting that “the rocket projectiles caused material damage to the vehicles and buildings.”
He stressed that "the National Security Agency will pursue the perpetrators of these criminal attacks and bring them to justice."
At dawn on Friday, an official security source reported that the vicinity of the United States Embassy in the fortified Green Zone in the center of the capital, Baghdad, was subjected to a missile attack.
The source told Shafaq News Agency that explosions were heard within the vicinity of the American embassy in Baghdad, with sirens activated inside its building.
Later, the office of the official spokesman for the US Embassy in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, confirmed that the embassy building complex was subjected to a missile attack that did not result in human casualties, at the same time accusing pro-Iranian militias of carrying out the attack.
In turn, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Prime Minister, Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani, directed all security leaders to pursue the perpetrators of the attack by launching projectiles towards the American embassy in Iraq, and to bring them to justice.
A statement received by Shafaq News Agency stated that Al-Sudani stressed in his directives that targeting diplomatic missions is something that cannot be justified, and cannot be accepted, under any circumstances and regardless of the allegations and illusions behind these shameful acts.
Al-Sudani considered that "tampering with Iraq's stability, abusing internal security, trying to undermine Iraq's political reputation, and targeting safe places protected by the force of law, customs, and international agreements are acts of terrorism."
