Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units have accused the US-led coalition purportedly fighting the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group of attacking its base in the country’s western province of Anbar as government troops and their allies are seeking to purge the war-ravaged Arab country of remnants of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group.
Commander of the volunteer forces – better known by the Arabic word Hashd al-Sha’abi – in Western Anbar, Qassim Mosleh, told the Arabic-language al-Forat news agency that Danish forces launched eight artillery rounds at a base belonging to the pro-government fighters in the Sa’ada area of al-Qa’im district, located nearly 400 kilometers northwest of the capital Baghdad, on Sunday evening.
Mosleh added that the projectiles slammed into an area close to the base, describing the incident as a “deliberate attack.” No Hashd al-Sha’abi fighter was dead or injured as a result.
Meanwhile, six Daesh terrorists were killed when Iraqi fighter jets carried out an airstrike against a militant position in the eastern province of Diyala.
Commander of the Tigris Operations Command, Mazhar al-Izzawi, told Arabic-language al-Sumaria television network that the military aircraft struck an area on the outskirts of Khanaqin district, emphasizing that the assault was mounted following accurate intelligence reports.
