Iraqi Militia Says New Drone Attack Killed Commander
Two members of an Iran-backed Iraqi paramilitary force say that a new drone attack has killed one commander and wounded another near the border with Syria.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to journalists about the matter.

If confirmed, it would be the latest in a series of attacks that have targeted PMF bases and weapons depot in Iraq. U.S. officials have said that Israel was behind at least one of them. ...
