ISWNews Analysis Group: Early on June 27, the US warplanes bombed resistance positions 15 kilometers south of al-Qaim crossing in the Qasabat area.
According to available information, the airstrikes included four attacks on Kataib Hezbollah and Kataib Sayyid al-Shuhada positions in the Qasabat area, 15 km south of al-Qaim crossing, killing four members of the resistance and wounding several others.
The US also issued a statement confirming the attacks, calling them a response to attacks by Iraqi resistance groups on its convoys and bases in Iraq. The United States claimed that the operation targeted a facility used by Iran-backed militia groups for operations, planning, and storage of unmanned aerial vehicles.
According to information provided by the United States, the attack was carried out by an F-16CM warplane.
It is worth mentioning that yesterday, the suspicious movements of a US ‘McDonnell Douglas KC-10 Extender’ refueling tanker aircraft over the attacked area were monitored and reported by the ISWNews.
Earlier, on February 25, American F-15 warplanes fired seven missiles at resistance positions near the Bukmal crossing. The attack was also ordered by Biden. This is the second attack by US forces on resistance positions since Biden took office.
