On December 12, a convoy moving logistic supplies and equipment for the US-led coalition came under attack in Iraq’s western region
An improvised explosive device struck the convoy as it was passing near the area of al-Karama in the province of al-Anbar. A newly-formed group calling itself “al-Sabiqun” claimed responsibility for the attack.
Al-Sabiqun is one of several pro-Iranian Shiite armed groups which emerged in Iraq 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.
In a statement, the group claimed that the convoy was moving “sensitive military equipment” to Ain al-Assad Air Base which was supposedly evacuated by the US-led coalition.
Less than twelve hours earlier, two rockets were fired at the highly-fortified Green Zone in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, where the US embassy is located.
Iraqi security sources told RT that one of the rockets was intercepted by the US C-RAM [Counter Rocket, Artillery, and Mortar] system, while the other hit the victory square without causing any real losses. The rocket attack may have been carried out by pro-Iranian forces.
Iraq’s National Security Advisor announced on December 9 that the US-led coalition had ended its combat missions in the country. The announcement was a part of a US plan to rebrand its fairly large military presence in Iraq as a “training mission”.
The US plan is not working, however. Pro-Iranian forces continue to demand a complete withdrawal of US forces from Iraq before the year’s end.
They gave USA until 31St to leave. I wonder if they’ll directly attack their base if they don’t.
They should have attacked it already.
I know, but hopefully the 31st they send their bases a nice New Year’s Eve present
They need hitting like the Al Asad base with ballistic missiles,also every patrol those criminals send out should be attacked,the American public won’t accept more of their boys coming home in boxes.
So what damage was caused or was it another case of sending up a cloud of dust and scaring the drivers or are they so used to it now they just shrug their shoulders and carry on . All in a days work. They need to get ISIS in to teach them how to do a proper job. That would be fitting ..
ISIS love this.
I.S.I.S. was created in 2012 by J. Mac cain, satanyahoo, MBS and Simon Eliot(al bagdadi) All the officers are zionists, C.I.A. members…. They are gided by satelite and airlifted by the yankees, nato, turky. Protected by zionist army when they are in trobles zionist planes comme helping them.
According to Wesley Clark, Isis was created to fight and defeat Hezbollah after NATO and Israel both failed miserably
Yes I know, that is why it would be fitting if ISIS taught the Iraqi groups how to really blow up the US convoys.
No material or human loses – what an attack lmao
Revenge will come.
to litle to late. The Iraki people had to eliminate all the politics pro yankee and zionist. Can they live knowing the parasites who murdred you family, stole all the gold, the oil…. still be in your country? All foreng troops are a legitimate target !!! Burn the zionist nest (us ambassy) down to the ground !!!
How does a American Soldier feels ? Does he/she/it knows that they are occupiers, that they are the bad guys?
Do they know that they are schooled to be dumb killers for rich criminals, who dont give a shit if a Iraqi or American dies. USA got a offensive military for what, if they are peacefully…
Dear young American soldiers ur same as the British which u “fought” 1776, Nazi-Wehrmacht or stormtroopers of Star Wars u are not the good guys, even if u are brainwashed to think u are, ask the Vietnam veterans…
