US military convoy blown up in Iraq’s Diwaniyah: Reports

Press TV – July 11, 2020

A US military convoy carrying logistic supplies has been attacked in Iraq on the road between Samawah and Diwaniyah, south of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, local media reports say.

At least three vehicles of the convoy were reportedly destroyed or damaged in the attack which occurred at 10 pm (local time) on Saturday.

Some media reports say the convoy has been targeted by a remote-controlled VBIED.

The convoy was reportedly traveling between the cities of Diwaniyah in Al-Qadisiyyah province and Svehiclein Muthanna province.

The videos and images released of the incident suggest that the vehicles caught fire following the attack.

It is not immediately clear if any casualties were incurred.

The newly formed Iraqi group, Saraya Thawrat al-Eshreen al-Thaniya, has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Anti-US sentiments have been running high in Iraq since Washington assassinated top Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani and the second-in-command of the Iraqi popular mobilization units, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, in January.

Following the attack, Iraqi lawmakers unanimously approved a bill on January 5, demanding the withdrawal of all foreign troops.

Baghdad and Washington are currently in talks over the withdrawal of American troops.

Iraqi resistance groups have vowed to take up arms against US forces if Washington fails to comply with the parliamentary order.

  1. The USA has no right to be in Iraq in the first place. They attacked Iraq under completely fake “Weapons of Mass Destruction” lies in the first place, then hung the elected PM/President of Iraq on false charges.., without finding any weapons of Mass Destruction.

  2. If I were an Iraqi and the US came into my country under any auspices whatsoever and acted like they were in charge? I would definitely strap on the biggest bomb I could and find the most soldiers I could and I would blow us up.

    Imagine another country invading the US and doing the same. What would you do? Funny thing though. The US is being brought down by it’s own government. Well, along with ISRAEL, of course. Dare I say, JEWS.
