The United States military on Sunday
struck five targets in Iraq and Syria controlled by an Iranian-backed
paramilitary group, in response to a rocket attack on Friday that killed an American contractor, the Pentagon said. The
airstrikes, carried out by Air Force F-15E fighter planes, hit three
locations in Iraq and two in Syria, all controlled by the paramilitary
group, Kataib Hezbollah.
