Air strikes against trucks and weapons depots in eastern Syria killed eight fighters of Iraq’s Hashd al-Shaabi militia force overnight, according to a UK-based activist group.

Lebanon’s Al-Mayadeen news outlet said Israel was responsible for the strikes early on Friday in Albu Kamal on the Iraqi-Syrian border.

Through a spokesman contacted by the AFP news agency, the US-led military coalition operating in Syria and Iraq denied carrying out the strikes.

“Unidentified aircraft targeted vehicles and arms depots in the Albu Kamal area, causing a large explosion. At least eight Iraqi Hashed fighters were killed,” said the head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami Abdurrahman.

Abdurrahman said several others were wounded.
