The United States Central Command (CENTCOM) has announced that airstrikes were carried out “against multiple facilities used by Kataib Hezbollah and affiliated groups in Iraq,” which it says is in “response to multiple attacks against coalition forces in Iraq and Syria.”

“Earlier in the day, Iranian sponsored Kataib Hezbollah terrorists and affiliated groups attacked coalition forces at Erbil, Iraq resulting in several injuries.”

“Early assessments indicate that these U.S. airstrikes destroyed the targeted facilities and likely killed a number of Kataib Hezbollah militants. There are no indications that any civilian lives were affected,” the statement went on to add.
