On September 4, the pro-Iranian Islamic Resistance in Iraq – ‘Ashab al-Kahf attacked two convoys carrying logistic supplies and equipment for the US-led coalition in Iraq.

The first convoy came under attack in the southern province of al-Diwaniyah. ‘Ashab al-Kahf said that the convoy was targeted with “several weapons.” At least one truck was completely destroyed. A video of the attack was released by the group.

 

Just a few minutes after the first attack, the second convoy was targeted with several explosive devices as it was passing in the central province of Babylon. Two trucks burned down as a result of the attack.

‘Ashab al-Kahf and other pro-Iranian factions in Iraq have been attacking US-led coalition supply convoys and bases for more than a year now. These attacks are meant as 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.

Last week, a rocket attack targeted several convoys carrying logistic supplies and equipment for the US-led coalition in southern Iraq near the border line with Kuwait.

The US-led coalition denies any links to the supply convoy being attacked in Iraq. Earlier this week, a spokesman for the coalition called reports on these attacks “misinformation and propaganda”.

These attacks will not likely stop until US announce a plan to withdraw all of its troops from Iraq. Washington claims that its troops in Iraq are on a “training mission”.
