US airstrike kills five militia members in Iraq

A suspected US air strike killed five members of an Iran-aligned Iraqi armed group north of the city of Kirkuk as they were preparing to launch rockets against US forces in the country, three Iraqi security sources said.

A US military official did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


  •   Iraq’s prime minister warned Washington on Saturday against any “attack” on Iraqi territory, after a resumption of fighting in the Israel-Hamas war renewed concerns of a wider conflict.

Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani made his comment during a phone call made to him by United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken, al-Sudani’s office said.

On November 22, US fighter jets struck two targets in Iraq, killing nine pro-Iran fighters in retaliation for repeated attacks on American troops, US and Iraqi sources said.
