The accident did not result in material or human losses.
The attack took place two days after the Iraqi Resistance coordination room had issued a statement threatening the US forces of resuming attacks.
Previously, on May 23, 6 US logistical convoys were reportedly targeted with roadside bombs in various regions of Iraq.
The attacks were reported in Babylon, Aldewanea, Alsmewa, Alnasrea and Basrah regions.
Iraqi “resistance” forces are known to carry out such attack on US forces in order to push them out of the country.
The attacks on US supply convoys and facilities in Iraq are a 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.
