Iraqi military condemns U.S. airstrikes in the country

The United States launched Thursday an attack on a pro-Iranian militia group in Iraq, which it blamed for the death of two American troops and one British soldier in a rocket attack a day earlier. Iraq’s military condemned the overnight airstrikes, describing them as an aggression against Iraq’s formal armed forces. The Iraqi military said no paramilitary fighters had been killed in the strikes, noting that three soldiers, two policemen and one civilian were killed and 12 others injured.

MoD admits to dropping bombs on Iraq two weeks ago despite supporting global ceasefire during Covid-19 pandemic

The Peace Pledge Union accuses the government of attempting to hide from scrutiny

BRITAIN staged airstrikes in Iraq during PM Boris Johnson’s hospital stay this month just a week after the government offered support for a global ceasefire during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) admitted on Saturday that the Royal Air Force (RAF) had carried out the attacks, which are the first known aerial strikes by British troops for seven months.

The bombing, which the MoD said took place on April 10, was reportedly part of a counter-terrorism operation in northern Iraq.
