US drone strike against militia members `violates' Iraqi sovereignty, says spokesperson

The US drone strike that killed a senior military leader of Iranian-backed Kataib Hezbollah on Wednesday night violates Iraqi sovereignty, the Iraqi premier's military spokesperson said.

A drone strike at 9:30 PM (Baghdad time) hit a vehicle in the Mashtal neighborhood in Baghdad's Rusafa, where Abu Baqir al-Saadi and Haj Arkan Aliawi, leaders of Kataib Hezbollah, were killed.

The strike "violates Iraqi sovereignty", Yehia Rasool, the military spokesperson for Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia' Al-Sudani, said in a statement on Thursday, slamming the US-led Coalition against ISIS for the attack.
