The attack against U.S. forces is the first since early February when Iranian-backed groups in Iraq stopped their attacks against US troops.

The strike comes on the same day Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani returned from a visit to the United States and met with President Joe Biden at the White House.

Two security sources and a senior army officer said a rocket launcher fixed on the back of a small truck had been parked in Zummar, a border town with Syria.

The military official said the truck caught fire with an explosion from unfired rockets at the same time as warplanes were in the sky.

“We can’t confirm that the truck was bombed by U.S. warplanes unless we investigate it,” said a military official on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the incident.

The attacks came one day after a huge blast at a military base in Iraq
early on Saturday.

Suspected Israeli stealth fighters blitzed an Iran-backed military base in Iraq in another “shadow war” strike overnight.

Three F-35 Lightning fighters were reported to have spearheaded the attack at an Iranian puppet group’s terror base 30 miles south of Baghdad.

No aircraft were detected in the area before huge explosions at a command post left at least one dead and eight wounded.

Israel operates a strike force of 75 F-35s – rated as the world’s most powerful war jet thanks to their space age weaponry and radar-dodging technology.

The strike early today hammered a Popular Mobilisation Force (PMF) HQ in Kalso which is bankrolled by the terror-stoking mullahs of Iran.

Israel made no comment on the attack but the US confirmed it had not been involved – and no regional force but Israel has the firepower and motive to launch the strike.
