Baghdad, Dec 30 (TIWN) At least 25 people were killed after the US attacked an Iranian-backed militia group in Iraq and Syria, the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) said on Monday.

Weapons caches and command and control centres at five sites associated with Kataib Hezbollah were hit on Sunday, the defence department said.  An Iraqi paramilitary force said 25 fighters were killed and 51 injured.  The US secretary of state said it would not stand for Iran taking actions that put American lives in jeopardy.  Kataib Hezbollah leader Jamal Jaafar Ibrahimi, who is also known as Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, warned that "the blood of the martyrs will not be in vain".
