Unidentified warplanes strike pro-Iranian militia on Iraqi-Syrian border again

A military base of a pro-Iranian Shiite group in the Iraqi al-Anbar province on the border with Syria was attacked on Sunday by an unidentified aircraft or a combat drone, reports the Lebanese TV channel Al-Mayadeen.

The camp of the al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Forces) militants, many of whom were trained at the training bases of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps in Iran, was reportedly hit by an the airstrike.

According to the TV channel, a military camp near the town of Al-Marsanat in the Iraqi western province of Al-Anbar was attacked by planes of an unidentified country. According to the report, there were no casualties as a result of the strikes.

Three days ago, an unidentified country's air force attacked positions of Shiite pro-Iranian militia forces on the Iraqi-Syrian border near the Syrian town of Al-Bohmal. The airstrike killed five militants and wounded nine others.

The militant’s positions came under air attack on September 16. At that time, 10 al-Hashd al-Shaabi militants were killed. A week earlier, on September 9, an unknown country's air force had destroyed an al-Hashd al-Shaabi arms depot near the Iraqi town of Hit (Al-Anbar province). The warehouse, according to Israeli military analysts, could have been used to store high-precision-guided missiles and explosive-laden drones that the militants were about to launch into Israeli territory.

The Syrian authorities blamed Israel for the bombing on the night of September 9.

The raids on Iraqi territory also took place on July 19, 12, 20 and August 25, when an airstrike killed the field commander of another pro-Iranian group, Kataib Hezbollah, Kazem Ali Mohsen, and destroyed a missile storage facility. Several foreign and primarily Arab media outlets reported at the time that Israel was behind all these attacks.
