BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: August 8: Two Katusha rockets fell on west Baghdad’s fortified Green Zone on Wednesday, but losses were not known, a security source reported.

He said the Security forces found the rockets-launching pad in al-Saeaada area of southeast Baghdad’s Zaafaraniya district, giving no further details.
