US launched airstrikes and hit five Shia’s warehouses in Iraq
BAGDHAD, (BM) – The United States launched airstrikes on five weapons depots in the Shia group Kataib Hezbollah in Iraq, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing news agency TASS.
It is noted that the United States struck on the early morning of Friday, March 13, in response to a missile attack in Iraq, which killed American troops. A Pentagon statement said the United States launched high-precision defensive strikes at Kataib Hezbollah sites throughout Iraq. So the American side intends to significantly weaken the ability of the group to carry out attacks on the forces of the US-led anti-terrorist coalition in the future.
On March 2, in the central part of Baghdad, the “green zone“, where the US embassy is located, was fired.
Since the beginning of the year, the US embassy has been rocketed several times. A series of attacks began after US troops killed General of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Kassem Suleimani, a general of the elite Iranian special forces Al-Quds, on the night of January 3.
On the night of January 8, Iran launched a missile attack on US military facilities in Iraq. The operation was called the “Martyr Suleymani”.
The US-led international anti-terrorism coalition has been carrying out Operation Unshakable Determination against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria since 2014.
