TEHRAN, Jul. 19 (MNA) – A spokesman for the US-led coalition forces in Iraq dismissed a previously reported drone attack by the US troops on a vehicle belonging to Hashd Al-Shaabi (PMU) on the Iraq-Syria border.

The spokesman for the US-Led Coalition, Colonel Wayne Maruto dismissed the report on the alleged US drone attack against a vehicle belonging to Hashd Al-Shaabi (PMU) on the Iraq-Syria border on Sunday as misinformation.
