Pentagon Supports strikes against Iran-backed militia group Centers in Iraq

The Pentagon on Thursday affirmed the United States had completed strikes against five Iran-backed militia weapons storage facilities in Iraq, a day after a fatal enemy assault murdered two American and British agency members.

“The United States conducted defensive precision strikes against Kataib Hezbollah centers across Iraq,” a Pentagon statement said.

“These weapons storage facilities include facilities which housed weapons utilized to target the US and coalition troops,” it stated.

The strikes were”defensive, proportional and also in direct reaction to the danger posed by Iranian-backed Shia militia groups,” the announcement added.
