An airstrike on the Iraqi-Syrian border and inside Syrian territory was reported by Al-Mayadeen, citing sources that claimed that forces deployed at the border made the security alert.

​Local media claim, citing sources, that the new airstrikes were targeting installations of Iraq’s militia Kataeb Hezbollah in Al-Qaim region on the Iraqi-Syrian border.

​Unconfirmed reports claim that at least 5 people were killed in the US strike targeting “Imam Ali” military base.

​The region is reportedly known to host Iranian-backed militia forces. There has been no confirmation of the attack. The US Department of Defence has not issued any statement.

The airstrike comes on the heels of the previous attacks on Saturday that were reportedly carried out by US forces in Iraq targeting various military installations of the local militia.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.
