BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) – Iraq’s Hashd Al-Sha’abi (Popular Mobilization Units) have confirmed the U.S. attack on their base along the Syrian-Iraqi border this evening.
According to Hashd Al-Sha’abi, the U.S. warplanes targeted the base of the 45th Brigade in the Al-Qa’im District, which is located on the other side of the Syrian-Iraqi border.
The Pentagon has since confirmed that they carried out the attack, claiming that it was revenge for the rocket strikes on the K-1 base in the Kirkuk Governorate of northern Iraq.
This rocket assault resulted in the death of one U.S. military contractor.
No group claimed responsibility for this attack last Friday.
