One martyred, four wounded as US attacks anti-terror forces on Iraq-Syria border: Press TV

One person has lost his life and four others have been wounded in the US military’s air raid against positions of resistance forces operating against terror groups on the Iraqi-Syrian border, an informed source tells Press TV.

The casualties were caused in the early hours of Friday, as the American airstrike targeted facilities used by forces of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) — better known as Hashd al-Sha’abi — at a border point in eastern Syria, where the resistance group has been fighting remnants of the Takfiri Daesh terror group in coordination with the governments in both Arab countries.

In a statement issued after the assault, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said the raid had been “deliberate” and meant to “de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern Syria and Iraq.”

The military action, the first of its kind under US President Joe Biden, was said to be in retaliation for recent attacks against American bases and missions in Iraq, which Washington has blamed on so-called “Iran-backed” Iraqi resistance groups.
