The US military decided to join the airstrikes in Syria. It was estimated that 30 Iraqi soldiers were killed and 20 injured during the airstrike conducted by US military.

“30 Iraqi servicemen from the 55th brigade of the Iraqi Army have been killed and 20 injured after an airstrike carried out by US aviation in the town of Al-Naimiya, Fallujah province,” Hakim al-Zamili said.

The politician stated that he demanded “the [Iraqi] prime minister to conduct an investigation into the airstrike against the 55 brigade, which had previously had huge success in the fight against Daesh terrorists.”

Daesh (ISIL, ISIS), the international terrorist organization, is in control of vast territories in Iraq and Syria. A number of ISIL cells, with local insurgent groups pledging allegiance, are also known to operate in Libya, Yemen and other territories across the Middle East and North Africa.

Baghdad will go to court over a US airstrike, head of the Iraqi parliament’s security and defense committee Hakim Zamili told Sputnik following the incident.

“This is very serious and I have asked the prime minister to launch an urgent investigation… We will go to court over this crime, there will be a hearing,” Zamili said.

According to the lawmaker, the number of casualties may increase.

The Pentagon have denied claims that Iraqi soldiers were killed as a result of the US airstrikes.
