Four convoys moving logistic supplies and equipment for the US-led coalition have been attacked in different parts of Iraq.
On June 26, three convoys came under attack. The first convoy was targeted near the city of Hillah in the central province of Babylon, the second near the city of al-Diwaniyah in the southern province of al-Qadisiyyah and the third in an unspecified part of the northern province of Saladin.
On June 27, another convoy was attacked while it was passing on a road near the Iraqi capital Baghdad in the central region.
As usual, all four convoys were targeted with improvised explosive devices. No human losses were reported as a result of the attacks.
Such attacks are usually carried out by pro-Iranian factions in Iraq. The attacks are meant as a response to the to the assassination of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy-Commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units, and Commander of Iran’s Quds Force, Qassim Soleimani.
So far, the US military and intelligence have failed to put an end to these attacks, which are disturbing the operations of American troops in Iraq.
