Drone attack targets US consulate in Iraq’s northern city of Erbil

A drone exploded near the US consulate in Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region, the latest in a series of attacks in the area amid growing anti-American sentiments in the country.

Security sources said the US consulate’s military section in the Shorsh neighborhood, located in the northern city of Erbil of Iraq, was targeted by a drone attack on Wednesday at 9:35 pm local time.

Several cars were damaged and three people were injured in the attack. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
