On August 3 afternoon, another logistical supply convoy of the U.S.-led coalition was targeted in the southern region of Iraq.
“An explosive device blew up targeting an international coalition supply convoy on the international highway linking Dhi Qar and Muthanna,” an Iraqi security source told the UAE-based al-Ain TV.
According to the source, the attack didn’t result in any casualties. The source declined to provide any further details on the attack.
Sabereen News, a Telegram channel close to Iraqi Shiite groups, said the convoy was targeted with an explosive device as well as a hand grenade. The channel also shared a video of the convoy prior to the attack.
This was the third such attack within the last 24 hours. Late on September 2, a supply convoy was targeted in the central province of Babylon. Early on September 3, a Katyusha rocket struck the headquarters of an Iraqi company working for the coalition in Baghdad International Airport.
Iraqi Shiite groups affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps are reportedly behind the recent attacks on the U.S.-led coalition.
Shiite groups vowed to expel the U.S.-led coalition from Iraq following the assassination of Quds Force Commander Maj. Gen. Qassim Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy-Commander of the Popular Mobilization Units, earlier this year.
