Iraqi militia says it hit IS targets inside Syria

Iraqi militias say they have launched dozens of missiles targeting Islamic State militants holed up in a Syrian village across the border.


The state-sanctioned Popular Mobilization Forces said Thursday they fired 50 missiles at targets in Baghouz village, in the last speck of territory held by the extremists.


Iraq's military has bombed IS posts inside Syria before, but the militias -- many of which are backed by Iran -- rarely engage in cross-border shelling. Some PMF factions are fighting inside Syria.
