This just in, explosions were reported in Erbil, Iraq, which is where the U.S. Consulate is located.
Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said they attacked espionage centers and “gatherings of anti-Iranian terrorist groups” near Iraq’s northern city of Erbil with ballistic missiles, Iranian state media said late on Monday.
Explosions were heard in an area some 40 kilometers northeast of Erbil in the semi-autonomous Kurdistan region, three security sources said, in an area near the U.S. consulate as well as civilian residences.
Two dead and five wounded civilians had been brought to a local hospital after the explosions, two medical sources said.
