Iraqi ‘Resistance’ Respond To ISIS Last Massacre By Attacking Two US Convoys Near Baghdad

Illustrative image.

On October 28, two convoys moving logistic supplies and equipment for the US-led coalition came under attack near the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

The first convoy was targeted in al-Moshahda, while the second came under attack in Tarmiyah. Both convoys were most likely targeted with improvised explosive devices.

The pro-Iranian al-Muhandis Revenge Brigade has allegedly claimed responsibility for both attacks. The newly-formed group is named after deputy commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis who was killed in a US drone strike along with Iranian Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani in 2020.

According to the Tura News channel on Telegram, which is close to pro-Iranian forces in Iraq, the attacks were carried out in response to ISIS recent attack on the Shiite area of al-Miqdadiyah. At least 14 people were killed in the attack.

The al-Muhandis Revenge Brigade have reportedly codenamed the attacks on the US-led coalition’s supply convoys “al-Miqdadiyah Martyrs’ Revenge” in honor of the massacre’s victims.

Pro-Iranian forces in Iraq believe that US military presence is empowering ISIS, thus the US-led coalition is, in their opinion, responsible for the terrorist group’s increasing attacks.

Despite facing more and more pressure from pro-Iranian forces, the US remains determined to keep its forces in Iraq for the foreseeable future.

That is right. Hit the snake in the head.

jens holm

So funny. Its no wonder nothing is invented in places like this.

New kind of medical care invented: If someone is hit in the head by someone with a hammer, its treated by some orther doctor bite the same person on the food, and the pain is forgotten in the head…” :(

The article even mention more revenge for that criminal mass killer. A pity so few of his friends wasnt kiled as well.

The main problem is, that You dont take away the ones, which only knows bajonets and fear.

What happened to the good discus system of answers and replies back? I don’t know how to check any replies to me. Is it even allowed to do that?

Jnoub

I get my email notifications 2 hours later. I wish they had a better system, oh well.

jens holm

As jnoub write it, but you also has to make cross for if You want answers in Your mail or not.

The site has several filters. One is spellingcontest. Another i complicated sentenses trying to descriebe complicated things well often is not possible. You too often has to go down into the same kind of childlevel arabic, urdu and farsi has.

Tempting to compare this with the outdated DOS but written by Hooligans:(

What have these attacks achieved . We haven’t heard of a convoy being attacked recently because …. totally ineffective … haven’t happened … the US stopped these convoys in fear of them being attacked. … Usual story , no drivers killed which would put some fear into the others or no trucks damaged apart from superficial scratches and extra dust. So nothing changes and the supply convoys continue unabated with no escorts or protection because the attacks are nothing more than the sound of a fly buzzing around in the room somewhere. It might make those involved feel great but feeling great doesn’t win the war , nor does a thousand of these attacks that do little to no damage make the Yanks safely ensconced inside their base beg to go home.

Cromwell

Yes they must be using fireworks instead of a thousand kilo bomb full of nuts and bolts,then there wouldn’t be anything left of the convoy except a greasy spot.

Peter Wallace

Yes I think in a number of those videos it showed the blast quite some distance from the trucks. Being a crude device it has minimal effect . They need to work out better methods that have some effect. Obviously using an ATGM or RPG or even a boosted claymore would be nice but that may expose the person delivering it. Even a remote controlled toy to deliver a blast underneath the cab would do more damage. A 1 tonne bomb would rattle a few windows but making one and or getting it into place is another story. I was heavy truck convoy commander in Rhodesia for a period and we lost the odd truck on occasions and got shot up a number of times but it never stopped tomorrows convoy. This in comparison is pathetic.

Cromwell

Culverts under the road are best,or even a truck or car bomb near the road radio controlled.

Icarus Tanović

If you add Napalm to that, not even greasy spot.

Attacks do a lot. Supply lines are EVERYTHING in warfare.The US knows it can never fight a protracted war in Iraq or Syria because the resistance will simply interdict and cutoff. It is also a way of not escalating but frustrating US military planners. They will have to either leave or respond by escalation (which cannot happen for long if their supplies are being choked) in short, the Iranian axis of resistance have the US military by the short and curlies.

Peter Wallace

But these attacks do very little or nothing at all which is what I am saying. Every attack has a blast go off and only on a rare occasion has any damage been done at all. The worst that happens is the truck driver has to change his underpants and that does NOTHING to cut off supplies. The Iranian axis have the Yanks by the short and curlies. More like they are pissing themselves with laughter safe and sound in their bases untouched and unaffected . I have been saying for months these convoys need to be blown up not showered in dust. The truck drivers killed so it becomes impossible to find replacements. No Yank is with these convoys so none will get hurt .

These are just testing attacks. They are looking at how the enemy responds logistically, etc. In the meantime the drivers will demand higher and higher wages, or quit, increasing the cost of every trip. Danger is enough, damage is not strictly necessary most of the time. This is a long game, it is not about destroying equipment as such. If the iraqis are lucky US will leave all their equipment behind, so it’s better it’s intact!

Peter Wallace

Yeah right.. How long has the US been in Iraq. After the numerous IED’s that blew US vehicles to the shithouse , killed and wounded dozens and the US didn’t even consider leaving yet blowing dust over convoys and scaring local drivers without a scratch not only to them but no US serviceman in any danger and somehow this is going to force the US to leave. Yeah right. The long game. How long .. twenty years , thirty years . Increased wages for the drivers to be paid out of Iraqi slush funds of billions. Sure , increase the drives wages to 1,000 a month , that will drain the slush fund in a trillion years.

Moderate headchopper, Christina is the tranny in Sarajevo that f*cks your ass.

MB is not sectarian like Al Qaeda.

They don’t have anything to do with Sunnis, or Muslims whatsoever.

“Pro-Iranian forces in Iraq believe that US military presence is empowering ISIS” – They are still not getting it right – ISIS Is US Army, created, trained and paid for by USA – What they ARE getting right is to punish US army for ISIS actions – Well done. But we are still awaiting some highlevel assasinations for the murder of Soleimani and Muhandis

Cromwell

Well the missile attack on the Al Asad base shows Iran has the means to go on the attack,they could destroy the Al Tanf base if they wanted.

block

As long as the attacks continue, all is well. The ameroswine will eventually leave humiliated, see Afghanistan.
