Eastern Baghdad continued to see attacks as the al-Amin area of the New Baghdad District received seven rounds in two consecutive attacks July 18. One building was damaged in these attacks.

The East Rashid District’s al-Zubaida neighborhood, in southern Baghdad, came under attack for the second straight day as two separate attacks targeted the area in the early morning hours July 18.  A single mortar round impacted in a residential neighborhood, as a second round landed in an open field.
