The US says its forces have carried out strikes in Iraq on three facilities used by Iran-backed militia.

The “proportionate” strikes targeted “Kataib Hezbollah militia group and other Iran-affiliated groups”, Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin said.

He said the precision strikes were “in direct response” to attacks against US and coalition allies in Iraq and Syria. A number of US military personnel were injured in a missile attack on an airbase in western Iraq last week.
