US Says It Killed Pro-Iran Commander In Iraq Strike

An American air strike in Iraq killed a commander of a pro-Iran armed group Wednesday who was involved in attacks on Washington’s troops, the US military said.

The strike came “in response to the attacks on US service members” and killed “a Kataeb Hezbollah commander responsible for directly planning and participating in attacks on US forces in the region,” the military’s Central Command said on social media.

“There are no indications of collateral damage or civilian casualties at this time,” it added.
