The explosive shells fell on an "abandoned lot," resulting in "no casualties or physical damage," the statement said.
The authorities are yet to identify the group responsible for the attack, which took place just a few days after scores of people residing in Basra launched a protest against the government for not doing enough to improve the infrastructure of the region.
The Green Zone houses many prominent buildings such as the parliament and multiple foreign embassies.
