On January 25, a supply convoy of the US military was targeted by an IED attack in the Naseriyah area in the Iraqi province of Dhi Qar. There were no confirmed reports about casualties and most likely the explosion caused material damage only.
Over the past months, attacks on US supply convoys in the country have become a regular occurrence and their intensity has been growing.
Recently, the Islamic Resistance in Iraq – ‘Ashab al-Kahf, one of the groups responsible for attacks on US convoys, declared that it will attack not only supply convoys but US troops also in the provinces of Kirkuk, Saladin and Nineveh. By this move, anti-US forces likely seek to limit the freedom of movementof US troops in the country.
