Pentagon US strike aims to degrade militia’s ability for more attacks

In a statement released on Sunday, the chief Pentagon spokesman, Jonathan Hoffman, said that the US military struck five facilities used by an Iran-backed militia Kata’ib Hezballah in Iraq and Syria blamed for a rocket attack that killed an American contractor.  The strikes “will degrade KH’s ability to conduct future attacks against OIR coalition forces,” he said. “These locations included weapon storage facilities and command and control locations that [Shiite militia Kata’ib Hezbollah] uses to plan and execute attacks on OIR coalition forces,” he said.  KH has a strong linkage with Iran’s Quds Force and has repeatedly received lethal aid and other support from Iran that it has used to attack OIR coalition forces,” Hoffman added and called on the group to cease its attacks or face further strikes.

    Good to see Hizballah Ran like Frighten Rats back to their Basements with Rockets being Good Servants to IRGC Commanders afraid to Fight for Iran or Hizballah. Trucks covered by Drones exposes those Homes as well. The Pentagon has Spoken without saying a Word just left Death & Destruction & Iran Hizballah Caved Away!

    Degrade militia , that rules Iraq , and created stability ? Did Americans stated that they exist in Iraq thanks to built in Ghettos for themselves . What 5 bases with everyone around watching them . Peace needed , with Americans going home . Stop funding terror in ME , and have Israeli patsies enjoying themselves . Matter of time , they will all find a way . It was written in here over 10 years ago , that million men army will be coming from the North to the borders of Israel and Jordan . It came . Now is another prediction : In less than 5 years there will be no Jordan and possibly no Israel on the map. Make Peace , otherwise the outcome is right in front of you . And have American back home . Its enough .
