Lebanon's Hezbollah condemns U.S. air strikes in Iraq - statement

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanon’s powerful Shi’ite group Hezbollah condemned on Monday U.S. air strikes in Iraq and Syria targeting the Iran-backed Kataib Hezbollah militia, calling them a blatant attack on Iraqi sovereignty, security, and stability.

In a statement, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, which is also backed by Iran, criticised the United States for attacking groups in Iraq that have helped it defeat the Islamic State militant group.
