Another airstrike hits medical convoy in Taji, US denies responsibility
In more violence, another airstrike almost exactly 24 hours after the one that killed Soleimani has been confirmed by the Iran-backed Popular Mobilisation Forces.
The group said the strike hit one of its medical convoys near a stadium in Taji, north of Baghdad. None of its top leaders were killed, they said.
Several US officials have now denied responsibility for the attack, including a spokesperson for the Combined Joint Task Force.
The Iraqi military has also denied the strike took place and, according to NBC’s Richard Engels, said: “It’s a good sign. It could have been a tipping point, a bridge too far.”
