On December 9, the pro-Iranian Islamic Resistance in Iraq – ‘Ashab al-Kahf announced that it had attacked two convoys moving logistic supplies and equipment for the US-led coalition in Iraq.
The first supply convoy came under attack in the central province of Babylon, while the second was attacked in the southern province of al-Qadisiyyah. Both convoys were targeted with improvised explosive devices. No casualties were reported.
‘Ashab al-Kahf and other pro-Iranian forces in Iraq have been attacking US-led coalition supply convoys and bases for more than a year now in response 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.
A few hours prior to the new attacks, Iraq’s National Security Advisor announced 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 military presence in Iraq as a “training mission”. The attacks in Babylon and al-Qadisiyyah were likely a warning from pro-Iranian forces to Washington.
Last month, pro-Iranian forces threatened the US with a heated battle if it does not withdraw all of its troops from Iraq before the end of December 31.

“The announcement was a part of a US plan to rebrand its military presence in Iraq as a “training mission”.
Typical western propaganda BS. Training who or what exactly? More extremist proxies?
Well done boys!! drive out the oil thieving invaders!!
I believe this is an Iranian operation applying some pressure to the US in relation to the JCPoA negotiations currently going on in Vienna.
The Iranians are reminding the Yanquis: “Careful, we can also blow your shit up, so be nice …”
