Roadside bomb targets US coalition convoy in Iraq

A roadside bomb in Iraq’s southern Al-Diwaniya province yesterday targeted a convoy carrying logistical equipment for the US-led anti-Daesh coalition forces in the country, Anadolu reported.

The agency quoted an unnamed police captain as saying that the explosion caused “minor material damages” to one of the vehicles, without causing any human casualties.

Earlier in the day, two roadside bombs targeted an anti-Daesh coalition supply convoy in Dhi Qar Governorate, causing material damage.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks, however, Washington usually points the finger at pro-Iran armed groups
