Alwaght- US-led coalition warplanes attacked the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), also known as Hashd al-Shaabi, in the newly liberated Tal Afar region.

After a visit by the Iraqi Prime Minister, Haider al-Abadi on Thursday, the gathering of the forces was attacked by US-led coalition, the Commander of the PMF said.

“The missile attack on Thursday targeted the tent where the commanders of Hashd al-Shaabi were gathered and some of them were injured in the attack,” the Commander said in a statement.

The missile landed one meter from the tent when only coalition warplanes were flying over Tal Afar region.

The PMF demanded a comment from the coalition.
