[Ed. – The strikes came after Katyusha rocket attacks, attributed to the Kataib Hezbollah militia, killed two Americans and one British soldier at Taji in Iraq.  Some news services are running with unconfirmed local reporting that a top Iranian IRGC general was killed in the U.S. air strikes.]

The United States conducted airstrikes on facilities in Iraq on Thursday in retaliation for an attack that killed two U.S. service members, U.S. military officials said.

The Pentagon said the strikes targeted five Kata’ib Hezbollah storage facilities that housed weapons used to target coalition troops. The retaliatory strikes were a direct response to Wednesday’s rocket attack on Camp Taji.

That attack killed two U.S. troops and one British service member, and injured 14 others.
