The Iraqi military said earlier that at least 3 shells, identified as Soviet-made katyusha-type projectiles, hit the centre of Baghdad. Media reports alleged, citing sources, that several people were injured due to the shelling. Netizens have shared video depicting the alleged moment when the shells started exploding in the Green Zone.
The clip, reportedly made with a cellphone, depicts a compound wall, possibly in Baghdad, and captures sounds of distant explosions.
Another shaky clip alleges the moment the projectiles exploded in Baghdad's Green Zone. The dim video allegedly depicts military personnel standing near an armored vehicle in Bahgdad. A voice speaking in Arabic is heard in the background.
A third video is the shortest but most vivid. An eyewitness allegedly in the vicinity of the area targeted by the shelling on Sunday is making a video recording but after the first explosions detonate, the video abruptly ends, as the eyewitness quickly abandons the suddenly dangerous area.
