US raids slammed as ‘blatant violation’ of Iraq’s sovereignty


The US military says it targeted operational and weapons storage facilities at two locations in Syria and one location in Iraq, attacks that have slammed as a “breach of sovereignty”.

The US says it hit facilities that were being used to launch attacks against its troops.

One of the groups targeted has vowed revenge for 4 of its fighters killed in the strike by declaring open war against US targets in Iraq, a statement that raises concerns of an escalation of violence.
