Footage, depicting an alleged air raid in Syria appeared on social media. The short and shaky video shows some explosions in the distance and suggests that bombs detonated in the night. The clip, however, does not allow a precise conclusion about the region and the circumstances of the alleged air attack.

​There has been no official statement issued by any actor regarding the video.

The Wednesday attack on Iraqi military installations hosting US troops was reportedly the deadliest in several years and comes after a series of shelling assaults targeting US troops across Iraq as well as the US embassy in Baghdad.

The Pentagon has reportedly blamed the Iran-backed militia for similar shellings.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington sparked with new intensity after an assassination – at the behest of US President Donald Trump – on Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani on 3 January near Baghdad. His targeted extra-judicial killing has brought the US and Iran dangerously close to open war.

These are not Iraqi militaries, these are Iraqi sectarian fuelled militias who pledged allegiance to ayatoilet Khamenei rather than to their country, the same ones who targetted US diplomatic facilities a few days ago. As usual, the ayatoilet uses proxies as he’s too a coward to have the courage to directly confront US militaries.
In fact, those guys are Shia jihadis, just like al-Qaeda are Sunni jihadis… And a good jihadi is a dead one.

You also have a bùtt sore notion of courage. Since when have forces that fight with guerilla tactics like the French Maquis become back stabbing cowards and bandits?

Or were they always that?

They definitely were Iraqi militia and all sides condemn the acts of terrorism committed these IDF style murders.
