Two rockets landed inside the Green Zone in central Baghdad, Iraq, where the US embassy is located, setting off alarms at the compound, Sky News reported Thursday.

No casualties have been reported.

Citing eyewitness reports, an Al Jazeera journalist noted a plume of smoke rising up from the Green Zone following the two explosions.

This latest rocket fire marks the second time this week that projectiles have landed inside Baghdad’s Green Zone.
