U.S. Convoy Targeted By IED In Northern Iraq. Rockets Struck U.S. Base In Syria

On August 29th, an improvised explosive device (IED) targeted a US convoy moving between Hillah and Divaniiah, in Iraq.

 

Attacks such as this one have become commonplace in recent weeks and months, with frequent shelling of US positions and on the few camps that still house US troops.

Shelling in the area near the US Embassy in Baghdad, as well as the Baghdad International Airport, where US troops are stationed are also not uncommon.

This IED attack comes just days after a UN convoy was reportedly also struck on August 27th.

Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert, who heads the UN’s Iraq mission told the UN Security Council via videoconference that an improvised explosive device had detonated near a convoy operated by the World Food Program.

“Conditions for humanitarian actors are also hazardous in certain areas as was starkly highlighted Wednesday by the IED explosion that impacted a World Food Program convoy in Ninevah,” she said.

Ninevah province is in northern Iraq and includes the city of Mosul. ISIS took the area in 2014. Ninevah has a large amount of religious and ethnic diversity and parts of it are disputed between the federal and Kurdistan Region governments. Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units control much of the province, but ISIS still continues operating in some parts of it, carrying out attacks.

An unknown group known as the Guardians of Blood claimed on August 26th that it hit an American security convoy between the Nineveh province and Erbil. The group referred to itself as “Islamic Resistance.”

Meanwhile, not too far from Northern Iraq, the largest U.S. military deployment in Syria, which is located near the Conoco Oil Fields was reportedly targeted by a missile attack.

This was reported by the pro-Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) Deir Ezzor Media Center. It claimed that the attack on the Conoco base was carried out by pro-Assad forces, while other sources alleged that the attack was conduted by Iranian-backed groups.

Just days earlier, the same base was targeted by rocket fire, but the projectiles reportedly missed the installation.

Neither of these attacks received official confirmation, and no group assumed responsibility for them.

Things are not looking very rosy for US oil theft in Syria and Iraq. The Conoco oil theft enterprise run by the CIA and Saudis has been hit, and hopefully this is not the only time. IED’s defeated the US in Iraq and now should be employed more widely against US and Saudi occupation forces.

Assange is symbol of freedom.

Ashok Varma

Thank you. This is a very important issue for freedom of media and press in the rapidly authoritarian west, especially UK and US, which are now quasi police states.

Ashok Varma

US has totally failed in all its unnecessary hubris wars and is being weakened at the home-front which is on fire. It needs to end these sapping futile conflicts and deal with growing failures of wrecked state at home.

nyomarek

If the US did that, many Deep State Alligators Weapons Dealers would go broke.

I remember IED’s that took out their best tanks.. but guess this are just warnings..

Zionism = EVIL

The copper plated ones took out the Abrams M1 junk like a hot knife through butter. The new generation are far more lethal as they have been tested on various captured NATO and Zionist tanks.

They are becoming a nation of camps, in the streets of their cities the trend is to live in tents and shit on the sidewalks, abroad they illegally occupy public land and even claim to collect a prize, the world and nature itself is turning against this human scum, Arab and Muslim countries must be given the honor of being the first to seriously kick their asses.

Zionism = EVIL

So-much for Americunt and Zionist loser cunts.as I had posted
three weeks ago, it is now confirmed that Hezbollah has deployed Khordad
2 Iranian SAM system in Lebanon near Bekaa.

Iranian air defense system spotted near Syrian-Lebanese border

BEIRUT,LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – The Russian publication Avia.Pro posted a
satellite image on Sunday of what they claim to be an Iranian air
defense system near the Syrian-Lebanese border.

Citing an unnamed source, the publication posted a satellite image
that allegedly shows the deployment of the Iranian-made Khordad-3 air
defense system near the Syrian-Lebanese border.

“The source of the Avia.pro news agency has provided satellite images
showing at least three Iranian-made Khordad-3 anti-aircraft missile
systems on the Syrian-Lebanese border, from where most of the Israeli
F-16 attacks are made. The effective range of destruction of targets of
the latter is from 75 to 105 kilometers, which is enough to defeat
Israeli fighters in the event of new attacks on Syria,” the publication
said.

Maximum pressure, southeast asia style dialing up at an agonizing pace. This is going to be painful.

cechas vodobenikov

amerikans are becoming more stupid–slow learners–they required nearly 20 years in SE Asia to lose, aided by their own soldiers “fragging” their officers….they have been in Iraq for 30 years and they r too dimwitted to comprehend that they lost….20 years in Afghanistan—easily defeated…expected from insecure functionally illiterate immoral people
