Earlier in the day, a security source reported the death of eight individuals due to airstrikes conducted by the US military on Hezbollah faction sites in the Jarf al-Sakhr area. This action was said to be a response to the targeting of US bases in the region, as stated by Washington.
Conversely, the Iraqi government condemned the US airstrikes in a statement, considering them a "clear violation of Iraqi sovereignty."
