US Strikes Near Syria-Iraq Border Kill 5 Militia Fighters: Monitor

US strikes on eastern Syria near the border with Iraq killed at least five Iran-backed militia fighters, a war monitor reported on Monday.

“At least 5 Iran-backed Iraqi militia fighters were killed and several others were wounded in an attack by US warplanes” on the Syrian side of the frontier, said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The war monitor said that military positions were among the targets hit.

Syria’s state-run SANA news agency said one child had been killed, and that at least three other people were wounded. The strikes, confirmed by the Pentagon in a statement, mark the second such US attack on Iran-backed militias in Syria since President Joe Biden took office.
