"Two Katyusha rockets landed in the Green Zone area in Baghdad, no casualties reported," the ministry said in a statement.
A security source told Anadolu Agency that one of the rockets landed near the headquarters of Iraq's National Security Service while the other landed near a presidential palace in the area.
He added that several vehicles were damaged in the attack.
So far, no group has claimed responsibility.
The Green Zone has regularly come under rocket attack since the assassination in January last year of Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani in a US drone strike.
