Iraq, June 19, 2019 - The “Presidential Palace Complex” in the city of Mosul, northern Iraq, where a number of U.S. military forces are stationed, has been targeted by an attack of a single or multiple Katiusha rocket, according to several media reports.

Reuters is also reporting a rocket attack targeting the headquarters of a number of foreign oil companies in the city of Basra, southern Iraq. Exxon Mobil is one of the major companies with a branch in this important oil-rich city. Two Iraqi workers have reportedly been injured in this attack.

Tension in the Middle East are rising as these attacks follow another similar rocket attack in Baghdad fired from an area where militia groups linked to the Iranian regime are stationed, landing near the U.S. Embassy compound in the highly fortified Green Zone.
