On March 29th, improvised explosive device (IED) targeted three logistical convoys of the US-led international coalition.
The first attack took place in the Iraqi Al Diwaniyah province in central Iraq.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet. No casualties were reported.
According to pro-Iranian sources, similar attacks were reported in the provinces of Dhi-Qar and Babil.
The Sabereen news agency shared the video from Babil governorate:
The convoys of the U.S.-led coalition are suffering IED attacks on a regular basis. Recently, the number of such attacks have significantly increased.
On March 25, five convoys carrying supplies and equipment for the US-led coalition came under attack in different parts of Iraq. On March 18, an IED attack destroyed a vehicle of the US-led coalition supply convoy in the Diwaniyah area of Qadisiyyah Governorate.
The on-going attacks are carried out by pro-Iranian groups who aim to to force US forces out of Iraq. They have significantly increased their activity in response to the assassination of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy-Commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units, and Iran’s Quds Force Commander Qassim Soleimani.
Taking into account the growing risks, the forces of the US-led coalition do not take part in logistics in Iraq, the transportation of supplies is local contractors.
