A new US air raid targeting a commander of Iraq’s Hashd al-Shaabi paramilitary forces has instead killed at least six people early on Saturday, according to news reports, a day after a drone attack by the United States killed top Iranian general, Qassem Soleimani.
Iraq’s state television said the attack took place along Taji Road north of the capital Baghdad, but did not name the targeted figure.
