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.

Se puede interpretar como que EE.UU. está ayudando a ISIS, en esta zona aún permanecen células de ISIS.

Ridiculous! US troops are directly engaged at eliminating ISIS and provided, together with the coalition, all the air support that made the removal of the IRGC-created monster feasible. US mlitaries were asked to come by Iraqi government who wasn’t able to deal with ISIS alone. In case you didn’t noticed, ISIS is finished, all you have are some of them who are into a stay-behind thing! Your primary anti-Americanism makes you truth-proof! Hashd Al-Shaabi shot rockets towards US militaries, killing and wounding some, now they’re gonna get their due for fücking with Godzilla…

Let’s give a Gaddafi to the Ayatoilets!They want an apocalypse for the mahdi to come? They’ll have USAF giving them their apocalypse and Reza Pahlavi will return 🙂 Godzilla is a metaphor, pfff… USA doesn’t needs to invade : doing a Gaddafi is enough! Once the whole structure of the regime is demolished, you just have 80% of the Iranians willing to hang the mullahs to the 1st streetlight or tree around… All the targets are well known. I don’t understand China and Russia or Iran, I have good knowledges of their assets and absolutely know what they will do… Read more »

You mean the US-created Al-Qaeda offshoot ISIS right ? The same grandson that the US of A just watched and voluntarily stood by while it was pushing in direction of both Syria and Iraq, namely Baghdad itself, while its brave US-funded and US-trained Iraqi armed forces were leaving in such a hurry that they left behind billions of dollars worth of US-hardware for the taking all the while overwhelming ISIS 10 to 1. Khataib Hezbollah wanted to send a message (assuming it wasn’t yet another US-created ISIS false flag to begin with of course) and they expected to get a… Read more »

ISIS founder Zarqawi was smuggled into Iraq by IRGC in 2002… Guess who was pulling the strings from the shadows? Just Qassem Soleimani. He got inspiration from Machiavelli’s “The Prince” where Machiavelli explains that Alexander the Great used the very same method to build his empire! I think that US received the KH message, and KH received the US response. Time for the US to stop staying idle on Iran or its proxies attacks : all that Islamofascists understand is violence… Let’s speak their language with a Yankee flavour : with superior firepower! And if you want to get rid… Read more »

Ahah, miserable answer, as usual ! THey had TONS of golden opportunities to tkae on the so-called “head of the snake” as you so obsessively say it, they took exactly NONE and got humiliated instead. The response-retaliation cat & mouse game can go on and on for another decade if need be for all I care, Iraqi forces are quite used to the attrition game, which led to a quasi-complete withdrawal of US forces without achieving ANY of their principal strategic objectives, it will happen again ! can’t wait to see them kill each other in old fashioned Operation “Enduring… Read more »
