The US is responsible for the drone strike in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad that killed at least three Kataeb Hezbollah members, one of whom was a high-ranking commander, the United States Central Command (CENTCOM) says.

The commander was “responsible for directly planning and participating in attacks on US forces in the region,” CENTCOM says, adding that there are no reports of civilian casualties.

“The United States will continue to take necessary action to protect our people. We will not hesitate to hold responsible all those who threaten our forces’ safety,” it adds.
