Can we say that President Donald Trump doesn’t play around and is very serious?

It surely seems like he’s about cleaning house in Iraq, if this incoming news is correct.

Reports are that more airstrikes targeted a pro-Iranian militia convoy north of Baghdad, killing several people.

There are conflicting reports about who was in the convoy.

The Iranian-backed PMF says it included their medics.

Other reports suggest there was a high target among the convoy.

The strike comes only one day after a strike that that took out Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization, as well as Iraqi paramilitary commander Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, the head of the Iranian-linked Popular Mobilization Forces.

Two other leaders were reportedly arrested as well after the Soleimani strike, Qais Khazali (Leader of Asaib Ahl al-Haq) and Hadi al-Amiri (Head of Badr Organization) who reportedly had a hand in the embassy attack and visited the White House under Obama.

This is developing and we will update as more comes in.
