Iraqi Shia paramilitary fighters killed in USA airstrikes

Several Iran-backed Iraqi Shia militias have been fighting in Syria alongside Syrian government troops

USA forces have reportedly attacked an Iraqi military base affiliated to the country's Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), killing over 30 troops and injuring many more.

The airstrike took place in Anbar province, close to Iraq's border with Syria.

According to reports, 35 fighters were killed and 25 were injured in the airstrike on Monday night.

As the fight to oust ISIS from Mosul reached its climax this year, Bruno Geddo, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) representative in Iraq, told reporters, "People are trapped in the Old City in that situation of panic and penury may inevitably lead to the cork popping somewhere, sometime, presenting us with a fresh [refugee] outflow of large-scale proportions".

"The wounded have been taken to various hospitals in Iraq for treatment. We strongly condemn this deliberate attack". The spokesman of the US -led coalition, Army Col. Ryan Dillon, dismissed the allegation. In the early days of Daesh's terror campaign, the then-volunteer fighters played a major role in reinforcing the Iraqi army, which had suffered heavy setbacks in the face of lightning advances by the terrorists.

It said that group "holds the USA forces the responsibility for the consequences of the action".

Stressing that the USA has intentionally targeted the Hashd al-Shaabi forces, al-Nouri underlined that it is impossible for the American army to have mistakenly targeted the Iraqi troops as the United States is in possession of different state-of-the-art radars and other equipment.

It said: "This is in order to deprive the Americans from using the border line to pass their malicious agendas". He claims that was followed by an on-the-ground attack by the Islamic State group.

However, an Operation Inherent Resolve spokesperson told Sputnik that "these reports are unfounded", adding that "the coalition controlled area within the established deconfliction zone near al-Tanf remains an important area in which coalition special operations forces train and equip, advise, assist, accompany and enable Vetted Syrian Opposition (VSO) groups".

Meanwhile, Syrian political analyst Talib Ibrahim told Sputnik that the USA "has no legal right for maintaining its presence in al-Tanf or in any other region of Syria". It was the third attack by the coalition on Damascus' allies in the area.
