U.S. Forces Strike Iran-Backed Group in Iraq

(VOA News) Carla Babb - U.S. forces have carried out two series of strikes against Iran-backed forces and their facilities in Iraq since Monday, according to U.S. Central Command. On Wednesday, U.S. strikes targeted an operations center and a command and control node used by the Iran-backed militant group Kataib Hezbollah near Al Anbar and Jurf al-Saqr. The facilities had supported recent attacks on U.S. bases in Iraq and Syria. At least six militants were killed in the two strikes. On Monday, U.S. forces struck and killed Iran-backed proxies who earlier had launched a close-range ballistic missile against al-Asad Air Base in Iraq. The ballistic missile attack caused injuries to eight U.S. personnel. More than 60 rocket and drone attacks against U.S. forces have occurred since Oct. 17.
