Iraqi security sources said US C-RAM security forces targeted the embassy in Baghdad on Monday night and detonated a drone.
Armed drones are a new attack technique preferred by Iranian supporters in the Middle East. Al-Saabi, a pro-Iranian paramilitary force affiliated with the Iranian military, regularly launches missiles and drones with bombs against US installations in Iraq, but the AFP reports that they are never responsible.
Since the beginning of this year, 47 attacks have been sent to US bases in Iraq.
On Monday, the International Anti-Jihadi Coalition said three missiles were aimed at an Iraqi airport in a desert with US troops. The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a police recruiting center, killing at least four people.
New attacks come a week after US airstrikes on hashtag positions in Syria and Iraq, killing at least a dozen militants.
More than 2,500 US troops have been deployed in Iraq as part of an international coalition to fight the Islamic State jihadist group.
Concerned about the new drone strikes, the United States recently announced that it would provide up to $ 3 million for information on planned attacks targeting its interests in Iraq.
