East Syria strike kills 26 Iraqi fighters: monitor
Beirut: An air strike killed 26 fighters of Iraqi paramilitary group Hashed al-Shaabi in eastern Syria after a deadly attack on US-led coalition troops in Iraq, a war monitor said Thursday. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the Wednesday’s strike was probably carried out by the coalition. But the anti-militants alliance denied having carried out any raids in Syria or neighbouring Iraq on Wednesday night. – AFP
