Kataeb Hezbollah group, affiliated to Hashd al-Shaabi (popular forces), blamed the US spy agency, CIA, for the Monday rocket attack on residential areas in Baghdad.

“The CIA’s footsteps is seen in the criminal operations in al-Radwaniyah and scientific evidence and proofs confirm it,” Kataeb Hezbollah said.

It called for the formation of a joint committee by Hashd al-Shaabi and the Iraqi interior ministry to investigate about the attack.

Five civilians, including two women and three children, were killed in a rocket attack near Baghdad airport on Monday, the Iraqi Defense Ministry said.
