At least, six people have been killed while three others were critically injured in fresh air strikes targeted at Iran-backed Shiite militia leaders near camp Taji north of Baghdad, Daily Mail reports, quoting an Iraqi army source said late on Friday.
The report also indicated that a high-ranking figure may have been among those killed in the strike.
Daily Mail said the Pentagon did not immediately respond to its inquiry on the attack.
The attack follows a U.S. airstrike at the Baghdad airport early on Friday that killed Qassem Soleimani, commander of Iran’s elite Quds Force, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of the pro-Iran Popular Mobilization Forces militia umbrella group in Iraq.
