US bombing in Iraq again

... without asking Congress, the Whitehouse bombed some targets (Kitab Hezbollah and Kitab Saeed Ashahada) on both sides of the Iraq-Syria border.

The act may fall under jurisdiction that requires authorization under War Powers, but the White House didn't seek that from Congress.

The DoD said they targeted Iran-backed militias who had used UAVs against US personnel and facilities in Iraq.

Iraq's military condemned the act, saying it was a blatant violation of Iraqi sovereignty and national security.

The popular mobilization forces are part of Iraq's security structure, so the US did bomb an ally, analysts say, although the US said those groups had attacked US targets first.

Kitab Saeed Ashahada announced an open war again US targets in Iraq as a response.
