BAGHDAD

Hashd al-Shaabi, or Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), dismissed allegations Saturday airstrikes that allegedly killed military commanders on a convoy.

Iraqi News Agency (INA) cited a statement by the Hashd al-Shaabi committee that said the group claimed reports of the deaths of commanders are not true because the attack struck a health convoy in Baghdad.

Hashd al-Shaabi did not provide specifics about the attack.

News of the strike came a day after the U.S. confirmed it carried out a strike that killed Iranian top general Qassam Soleimani andy al-Muhandis, vice president of the Hashd al-Shaabi.
