On August 24, pro-Iranian Saryat Qasim al-Jabbarin [The Breaker of Titans Company] attacked eight convoys carrying logistic supplies, equipment and vehicles for the US-led coalition in different parts of Iraq.
Two supply convoys came under attack in the central province of Babylon, two in southern province of al-Diwaniyah, two near the capital Baghdad, one in the southern province of al-Muthanna and another convoy in the southern province of Dhi Qar.
All eight convoys were targeted with explosive devices, some of which were equipped with explosively formed penetrator charges.
A video showing only four of the eight attacks which took place on August 24 was released by Saryat Qasim al-Jabbarin.
According to the Sabereen News, some of the targeted convoys were moving Humvees and an unidentified type of MRAP [Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected] vehicles to US bases in northern Iraq. The US-led coalition was likely planning to move the vehicles, specifically the Humvees, to northeastern Syria later on.
Saryat Qasim al-Jabbarin is one of several pro-Iranian Iraqi groups which emerged following the assassination of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy-Commander of the Popular Mobilization Units, and Iran’s Quds Force Commander Maj. Gen. Qassim Soleimani.
The attacks on US-led coalition supply convoys and bases in Iraq will likely go on as long as Washington is determined to keep its forces in the country. On August 25, another attack targeted a supply convoy in al-Diwaniyah.
