US strikes against Kataib Hezbollah bases in Iraq, Syria kill 25

The US has conducted airstrikes against the Iran-backed Kataib Hezbollah militia group in Iraq and Syria following the death of a US contractor. At least 25 militia fighters were killed and more than 55 wounded following three strikes in Iraq. The strikes were in response to multiple rocket attacks in Kirkuk on Friday in which the American contractor was killed and 4 US servicemen were injured.
