On January 12, a convoy moving logistic supplies for the United States-led coalition came under attack in the Taji district to the north of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.
A group calling its self the International Resistance claimed responsibility for the attack, which resulted in material losses only. In a statement, the group said that it had targeted the convoy with two improvised explosive devices.
“Our battle with the [American] occupation will not end until they leave our land, the holy land,” the statement reads.
The U.S.-led coalition and Iraqi Ministry of Defense have not commented on the attack, yet. The convoy was reportedly able to continue its way after the attack.
The International Resistance is one of several pro-Iranian shadowy armed groups that emerged in Iraq following the assassination of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy-Commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units, and Commander of Iran’s Quds Force, Qassim Soleimani, by the U.S. around than three years ago.
This was the first attack to target a U.S. supply convoy in Iraq since Mohammed Shia’ Al Sudani, who is considered close to Iran, assumed the Prime Minister position last October.
Pro-Iranian Iraqi armed groups attacked hundreds of U.S. supply convoys over the past three years in an attempt to pressure Washington into withdrawing its troops from the country. These groups are still determined to achieve their goal as evident by the new attack.
America sent 11 tir of heavy weapons to northern kurdistan last month , america still continues sending heavy weapons , america giving the weapons to the kurds, america trying to be armed the kurds with weapons until the Operation in Northern Syria begins. Every new week new tir’s arriving to the north syria
Like irak fighters, turkish soldiers have to destroy the American TIRS sended to the syria .
How will the turkey guppu eat if they do what you suggest? What will happen to turkey if the west sanctions it? What would happen to Iraq if the US sanctions its oil? Do you understand?
They are shooting after a top exceptional US service member. This is unprecedented in humankind’s history. Nobody have ever dared to do that, not even the Russians. How dare you?
is this a joke? They never ever harm a yankee terrorist. A few killer drones from Iran would have blown up the whole convoy. A mondial terrorist who attact your country, killed milions off people, steal your oil, and you still do not start to exterminate them?
