Shiite Militia Fired On US Apache in Iraq

Allied Shiite militia forces fired on a U.S. Apache military helicopter several days earlier in an incident which could easily have escalated dangerously. The Shiite militia members, who fired on the helicopter from an Iraqi Army base near Fallujah, did not bring the Apache down, and there was no indication they caused serious damage. Al-Abadi warned that if the Apache crew had returned fire, it could have caused significant loss of life at the Iraqi base. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/isis-iraq-iran-shiite-militias-tikrit-questions-about-mosul/
