In the first hours of Tuesday on January 19, Iraqi forces positions in the al-Bihbahan area in the Jurf al-Nasr (al-Sakhar) area of Babil province were targeted by unidentified aircraft, following which nine Iraqi forces were killed.
According to preliminary information from field sources, the Americans attacked Iraqi forces with GBU-39 bombs. Some reports indicate the presence of the medical staff of the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMU) to transfer the martyrs and the wounded to hospitals.
Also Al-Alam confirmed the news of the martyrdom and wounding of several Iraqi forces as a result US airstrikes in Jurf al-Sakhar, and reported the extensive flight of US aircraft over the western part of Karbala province.
Al-Kadhimi sent anti-terrorism forces to Baghdad Green Zone to protect the US embassy. There are also rumors about the evacuation of residential houses around the US Embassy in Baghdad!
Although initial reports indicating US airstrikes against Iraqi forces positions in the Jurf al-Sakhr area, a spokesman for the US-led coalition in the region has reportedly denied any US airstrikes on Iraqi positions. Following this news, the fingers pointed at the Israeli regime because Israel has attacked the positions of the Iraqi forces in the past.
At the same time as the bombing of Iraqi forces positions, US Secretary of State Pompeo tweeted about the anniversary of the attack on the US Embassy in Baghdad! Clearly, this is a clear message to the Iraqi people! Do Iraqis dare to confront the United States? Will they get rid of the humiliation of being trampled by the enemies ?!
