SOHR:Airstrikes target militias on Iraq-Syria border

Kurdistan Region – Unknown airplanes targeted Iranian militias based on the Syrian-Iraqi border late Tuesday night, reported a conflict monitor. The US-led coalition has denied involvement.

Sounds of explosions were heard in Deir ez-Zor province, reported the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, adding there was no immediate information on casualties of material damage.

Telegram channels affiliated with Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) claimed that “US airstrikes targeted PMF bases.”

The US coalition said they are not responsible for the attacks. “We can confirm these are NOT our airstrikes,” it said in an email sent to Rudaw English.

The US has twice carried out airstrikes on the Iran-backed PMF stationed on the Iraq-Syria border this year, in June and February.

The strikes were in retaliation for drone and rocket attacks on US interests in Iraq.
