Civilian among six dead in US strikes: Iraq military

BAGHDAD (HRNW) – US air strikes targeting pro-Iranian military factions in Iraq early Friday killed one civilian and five security personnel, the Iraqi military said in a preliminary toll.

Three of the dead were Iraqi soldiers and two were policemen, the military statement said, adding that 11 Iraqi fighters were also wounded, some of them critically.

The civilian was a cook working at an unfinished airport outside the holy shrine city of Karbala, where another civilian was also wounded in the raids.

“Five missiles hit the administrative building at the airport and 18 cars were destroyed,” Issawi told media.
