Iraqi armed groups have claimed more than 70 such attacks against US forces since Oct. 17 over Washington’s backing of Israel in its bombardment of Gaza

The United States has 900 troops in Syria and 2,500 in Iraq on a mission it says aims to advise and assist local forces trying to prevent a resurgence of Daesh, which in 2014 seized large swaths of both countries before being defeated


BAGHDAD: A US air strike killed five Iraqi militants near the northern city of Kirkuk as they prepared to launch explosive projectiles at US forces in the country, three Iraqi security sources said, identifying them as members of an Iran-backed militia.

A US military official confirmed a “self-defense strike on an imminent threat” that targeted a drone staging site near Kirkuk on Sunday afternoon.

A statement by the Islamic Resistance in Iraq, an umbrella group representing several Iraqi armed factions with close ties to Tehran, said five of its members had been killed, and vowed retaliation against US forces.

The group had claimed several attacks against US forces throughout Sunday.
Earlier Sunday, the US military official said US and international forces were attacked with multiple rockets at the Rumalyn Landing Zone in northeastern Syria, but there were no casualties or damage to infrastructure.
Iraqi armed groups have claimed more than 70 such attacks against US forces since Oct. 17 over Washington’s backing of Israel in its bombardment of Gaza.

The attacks paused during the recent Israel-Hamas cease-fire but have since resumed.
The US in November launched two series of strikes in Iraq against what it said were Iran-aligned armed groups who had engaged in attacks against their forces.

Those strikes killed at least 10 militants who were identified both as members of shadowy militia Kataeb Hezbollah and of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces, an official security institution composed mainly of Shiite Muslim armed groups.

Iraq’s government condemned those strikes as escalatory and a violation of Iraqi sovereignty.

This is just a self defense strike from the US. A job well done.

Just a single whack from the US is enough to wipe out these terrorists. The US are always trying to dodge a scrap with these guys, it's not a sign of feebleness, but Islamic terrorist never listen. They launch attacks like cowards and moan when you strike back.

Well imagine after hundred rocket attacks on US base and not a major casualty but a single whack from the US is giving terrorist nightmares and losses. Lol

How would you know when you reason through your anus and have an IQ leass than that of a cockroach..!!

All countries have one form of bases either military or civilian as the case maybe in other countries of the world depending on their mutual agreement and understanding..and those bases are considered to be the territory of the country who owns them...attacking such bases amount to the declaration of war....!!

Go to school and be educated, you people won't and be embarrassing yourself and other here...!!

This is not a motor park where you and your fellow tout don't know anything...!!
