BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 A.M.) – Hashd Al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Units) announced the results of their investigation regarding last week’s attack that killed at least 22 of their fighters in southeast Syria.

The head of Hashd Al-Shaabi’s military operations, Abu Munather Al-Husseini, stated during his press conference on Sunday that after conducting a preliminary investigation into the alleged U.S. attack last week, his group found that the latter fired their missiles from a distance of 200 meters away.

Husseini said the U.S. military fired the missiles from their location near the Iraqi border-city of Al-Qa’im in the Al-Anbar Governorate.

Husseini added that both the US-led Joint Operations Command (JOC) and Hashd Al-Shaabi commander of the Jazeera and Badiya operations, Major General Qassem Al-Mohammadi, had prior knowledge of the Iraqi troops inside Syria.

Mohammadi reportedly “informed the Joint Operations Command by mistake that the troops were deployed 1500 kilometers away from the borders, after one of the commanders told him the information mistakenly. However, he did not correct it.”

“The crime is a war crime. We urge the government to defend rights of those martyrs,” Mohammadi added.

The U.S. has denied any role in this attack, while an official in Washington claimed that it was in fact Israel that carried out the assault.

So the U.S. tries to hide behind Israel?

If you analyse closely, especially pictures of the alleged strike and no casualties shown, would it be Hamastan, you’d call it #PALLYWOOD.
And an unnamed guy saying it’s not USA, it’s Israel.
I say one word : PROPAGANDA! Nothing happened!

Will the CIA ever get over getting their arses booted out of Iran? And no one got killed during the hostage taking. But Saddam o Puppet, you had to pay for 10 years of death, and the Heebs still want you dead. Dosnt look like a pretty ending. #Isreal Spring

Hummm, launching missiles from an alleged combat drone, as these said it was a droning, from… 200 meters away? Usually, a MQ-9 Reaper flies +5km high and guided weapons+electro optics don’t need to have an aircraft flying low. Now the damages shown to the compound can’t have been made by a drone, actually, they’re not typical of an aircraft too as to totally raze a place, 2000lbs bombs would have been used, then would have left huge craters… Actually, the damages shown on ONLY 2 pictures look like an artillery barrage!!! What is interesting is that I see zero condemnation… Read more »
