ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – A “large number” of Hashd al-Shaabi forces were killed and wounded in US airstrikes, the group has claimed. 

Sayyid al-Shuhada, a member of the mainly Shiite force, stated that their forces were bombed by US planes on Monday in Anbar province near the Iraq-Syria border and that they suffered many casualties. 

“We will not be silent in the face of this incident,” the statement read, calling for Hashd forces to meet to discuss the matter and take necessary measures. 

The Sayyid al-Shuhada also demanded an investigation from the Iraqi government.

Neither Baghdad nor Washington had made immediate comments on the incident. 

The Hashd al-Shaabi was made an official Iraqi force in an act of parliament late last year.

Is the US finally being even handed and going after shiite fanatics as well?

Conflict between shia and US is not our issue. Both are against Kurdish rights. We have our own problems. But I am against war.

This wasn't a US airstrike, but ISIS attacking their positions. One of their outposts got decimated, and a large number of people got killed and injured. To save face they've tried putting it off as an US airstrike, but media from ISIS sources clearly paint a different picture.
