(Worthy News) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday praised as “important” the series of US airstrikes a day earlier against an Iranian proxy group that had carried out an attack on American forces in Iraq.
Speaking on the phone with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Netanyahu “congratulated him on the important US action against Iran and its proxies in the region,” according to a statement by the Prime Minister’s Office.
The US carried out airstrikes against Kataeb Hezbollah (Hezbollah Battalion) in Iraq and Syria on Sunday, killing 25 fighters, two days after a barrage of 30 or more rockets was fired at the K1 Iraqi military base in Kirkuk, an oil-rich region north of Baghdad, killing a US civilian contractor and wounding four US service members as well as Iraqi security forces.
