Iraq says ‘US aggression’ killed at least 16 people, including civilians & damaged residential build



Iraq says 16 people, including civilians, were killed in ‘new US aggression’. In response, Iran-aligned groups say they have attacked US bases in Syria as well as western and northern Iraq. Myles B. Caggins the Third, a retired Colonel in the US Army who served in the Pentagon and National Security Council and a spokesman for the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIL in Iraq and Syria, joins Al Jazeera’s live from Erbil in Iraq and sheds light on the recent US strikes in Syria, emphasizing their dual objectives. He said, ‘Firstly, the strikes are to convey a resolute message to both the American public and Iranian militias that the US takes seriously any attacks on its troops. Secondly, these precision strikes on 85 targets across seven locations are aimed at obliterating storage facilities for rockets and drones, along with dismantling command and control structures.’ Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/AJEnglish Find us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/ Check out our Instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/aljazeeraenglish/ Download AJE Mobile App: https://aje.io/AJEMobile #Iraq #USAggression #CivilianCasualties #ResidentialDamage #WarCrimes #MiddleEastTensions #InternationalConflict #HumanitarianCrisis
