The United States reportedly took out more top Iranian-backed terrorist leaders in Iraq late on Friday night in airstrikes in northern Baghdad.
The Associated Press reported: “Iraqi official says airstrike hits cars carrying Iran-backed militia north of Baghdad.”
“Air strikes targeting Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces umbrella grouping of Iran-backed Shi’ite militias near camp Taji north of Baghdad have killed six people and critically wounded three, an Iraqi army source said late on Friday,” Reuters reported. “Two of the three vehicles making up a militia convoy were found burned, the source said, as well as six burned corpses. The strikes took place at 1:12 am local time, he said.”
The strike comes only one day after a strike that was authorized by President Donald Trump took out Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.
The strike that killed Soleimani also killed top Iraqi paramilitary commander Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, the head of the Iranian-linked Popular Mobilization Forces.
The two were killed when an American MQ-9 Reaper drone targeted a convoy that the two men were riding in that was leaving Baghdad International Airport.
Soleimani was responsible for killing hundreds of American soldiers in Iraq dating back to the start of the Iraq war in 2003.
Someone’s being a terrorist pig! Unlike his predecessor, Trump doesn’t want to leave any terrorists for the next guy.
in Recon-no prisoners taken
The US is not taking credit, and the militia said no top leaders were killed, I guess it was all wishful thinking. Question is who was operating the drone that took out the random militia vehicles.
