According to USA claim, these defensive (!) attacks were in response to Kata’ib Hezbollah’s recent attacks to American forces bases in Iraq and with these attacks the power of Kata’ib Hezbollah to attack American forces in future is reduced.
According to reports, two positions in Syria and three in Iraq were targeted by US warplanes.
It is said that four Hashad Sha’abi forces martyred and 14 wounded. Abu Ali KhazAli, one of the commanders of Hashad Sha’abi, is among the martyrs.
US attacks launched at 19:00 local time against Hashad Sha’abi 45th brigade in areas Ghabat Salum, al-Harsh (west of Anbar) and defensive line against ISIS at the border of Syria.
PS: It seems Iraqi people and armed forces should respond properly to US terrorist attacks against Iraqi forces by being united…
