On July 30, a convoy moving logistic supplies and armored vehicles for the US-led coalition came under attack in central Iraq.
A heavy explosive device hit one of the convoy’s trucks as it was passing in the province of Babylon. The truck was carrying what appears to be a mine resistant ambush protected vehicle, most likely of the US military.
Saryat Qasim al-Jabbarin [The Breaker of Titans Company], a pro-Iranian group, claimed responsibility for the attack. The newly-founded group also released footage of the attack.
A day earlier, the group’s cells attacked four supply convoys of the US-led coalition in Babylon as well as in the southern provinces of Dhi Qar and al-Diwaniyah.
The attacks came following an attempt by the US to rebrand its military presence in Iraq as a “training mission”. Pro-Iranian forces, who wants US forces out from Iraq, were not fooled by this attempt.
A source in the “Iraqi resistance” told RT on July 31 that they may soon begin attacking US forces directly because Washington is not serious about withdrawing from Iraq.
“We are fully prepared for the confrontation, and we are the ones who determine its beginning and end, because the US wants to circumvent the will of the Iraqis and their demand to end the occupation of Iraq,” the source said.
A serious confrontation between the US and pro-Iranian forces in Iraq may indeed break out soon. The result of such confrontation will not likely be in favor of Washington. Tehran’s allies in Iraq are well-armed, informed, experienced and highly-motivated.
