TEHRAN, Jan. 24 (MNA) – US Central Command (CENTCOM) announced on Wednesday night that it targeted the positions of Iraq’s Islamic Resistance in response to the group’s recent attacks on American bases and facilities in the Arab country.

CENTCOM wrote on X that strikes on Islamic Resistance’s positions were in response to attacks including the recent ones on Ain al-Asad air base in Iraq’s western province of Anbar.

These attacks targeted depots, rocket and missile training facilities, drone facilities, and the Resistance group’s headquarters, the statement said.

Iraqi media reported earlier that the US attacked the positions of the Islamic Resistance in Iraq, an umbrella group of anti-terror combatants.

According to Iraqi media reports, the military college in Jarf al-Nasr and an area near the Iraq-Jordan border were targeted.

Babil Province Medical Department also said that several ambulances have been dispatched to the site in Jarf al-Nasr and the emergency departments are also on standby.

Earlier, the Al-Mayadeen news network reported that at least five loud explosions were heard following the air strike on Jarf-al-Nasr.

According to Al Jazeera, the city of Al-Qaim in western Iraq was also targeted by the Americans.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq has carried out more than a hundred attacks using rockets against US bases and facilities in Iraq and Syria as well as hit some Israeli targets in retaliation for US support of Israel’s bloody military campaign in the Gaza Strip.
