Kataib Hezbollah suspends military actions against US forces

The Iran-backed Iraqi paramilitary group Kataib Hezbollah announced that it would halt military and security actions against US forces, saying it took the action to prevent "embarrassment" to Iraq's government.

On Monday, the US said that the drone strike that killed three American soldiers in Jordan had "the footprints of Kataib Hezbollah", and vowed it would respond.
