Iraqi militia accuses US of killing 22 of its fighters in Syria

BAGHDAD — An Iraqi paramilitary force accuses the United States of killing 22 of its fighters in an overnight air raid just inside Syria’s border with Iraq that a monitor said left dozens dead.

“US planes fired two guided missiles at a fixed position of Hashed al-Shaabi units on the border with Syria, killing 22 fighters and wounding 12,” the Iran-backed Hashed says, locating the raid at “700 meters (yards) inside Syria.”

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said earlier that nearly 40 foreign fighters allied to Syria’s regime were killed in the raid in eastern Syria.
