Three explosions target the US-led coalition in Iraq within hours


Shafaq News / Three explosive devices blew up on Tuesday targeting a U.S. convoy in southern Iraq. 

A security Source said the Coalition was targeted with an explosive device on Al-Diwaniyah Highway. 

Earlier today, another security source told Shafaq News Agency “Two explosive devices blew up on the so-called “the American Bridge”, western Dhi Qar targeting another convoy carrying logistical support equipment for the US-led Coalition which damage a vehicle of the Convoy.”  .

The source added that there is about 300 m between the two explosions that were remotely detonated.

The three explosions caused no human losses.

There was no claim of responsibility.

On January 5, the Iraqi parliament voted by majority to end the foreign military presence on the country's territory, following the killing of the Iranian Quds Force commander, Qassem Soleimani, and the deputy head Al-Hashd Al-Shaabi, Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, in an American airstrike near Baghdad International Airport.

Washington accuses armed Iraqi factions linked to Iran of being behind the attacks.
