PMF announces death toll from US bombing on Jurf Al-Nasr rises to 9

The Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) announced on Sunday that the death toll from the US bombing on Jurf Al-Nasr had risen to nine.  

The PMF mentioned in a statement that one man passed away on Sunday after suffering his critical injuries from the reckless US bombardment on Jurf Al-Nasr last week, bringing the death toll to nine, the Iraqi News Agency (INA) reported.

 The statement illustrated that three people injured in the bombardment are still receiving treatment.

Eight people were killed in the early hours of Wednesday after PMF sites in Babylon governorate southwest of Baghdad were targeted by air strikes carried out by US forces.

US Central Command forces carried out separate and precise strikes on two facilities in Iraq, according to a statement released by the US Army.

The US Army added that the strikes were a direct response to attacks on American and coalition forces by Iran and groups supported by Tehran.

The Deputy Pentagon Press Secretary, Sabrina Singh, said in a press briefing last week that US forces in Syria and Iraq have been targeted in 55 attacks since October 17.

“There have been 27 attacks against US forces in Iraq and 28 attacks in Syria,” Singh explained.

Singh illustrated that 59 US personnel have received injuries since these attacks began.

The increase in attacks on US forces is linked to the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas, which began after the Palestinian movement carried out a surprise cross-border attack from Gaza on October 7, which, according to the Israeli authorities, killed about 1,400 people.

Following the attack, the United States rushed to provide military support to Israel, which has since launched a relentless air, land, and sea assault on Hamas-controlled Gaza.
