At approximately 1300 local time (1000 UTC) on 13 October 2022, nine rockets landed in Baghdad’s Green Zone ahead of Parliament’s vote to elect a new president. At least 10 individuals were injured — including at least three civilians and two security personnel. No damage to infrastructure or buildings was reported, and no group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. The parliamentary session was briefly delayed as a result of the event. Iraqi politics have been deadlocked since the October 2021 parliamentary elections, during which followers of influential Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr won a plurality of seats but failed to form a government.
