US targets Iran-backed militia members in drone attack

The U.S. military carried out a drone strike in Iraq on Wednesday targeting members of an Iranian-backed militia group, two U.S. officials told POLITICO.

Both officials, granted anonymity to discuss a sensitive operation, couldn’t immediately confirm if any of the targets had been killed.

The attack on the Kataib Hezbollah fighters in eastern Baghdad was part of the Biden administration’s retaliation for the killing of three U.S. soldiers in Jordan on Jan. 28.
