US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has defended the bombing of pro-Iranian militants in Iraq and Syria, saying it served as a “strong deterrent message”.

“My hope is that last night’s raids have been heard and will deter any future moves,” Blinken said, describing his country’s stance as “self-defense to prevent further attacks.”

According to the US Department of Defense, the raids came in response to drone attacks carried out by the Popular Mobilization Forces on US targets in Iraq.

The Iraqi government condemned these air strikes, describing them as a violation of Iraq’s sovereignty.
