US attacks Shia militia: Iraq, Syria, Iran, Russia, Israel react

The United States has carried out attacks on the Shia armed group Kataib Hezbollah in Iraq and Syria, killing at least 25 fighters, the US Pentagon said on Sunday.

Washington said it targeted the Iran-linked group in western Iraq and eastern Syria in response to the killing of a US civilian contractor two days beforehand.

Iraqi security and militia sources said at least 55 fighters were wounded in the air attacks, adding that one of the raids had targeted the group’s headquarters near the western al-Qaim district on the border with Syria.
