A new attack targets the US-led coalition in Iraq


Shafaq News / An explosive device blew up on Friday targeting a convoy carrying logistical support equipment for the US-led Coalition in Jirishan between the Governorates of Basra and Dhi Qar. 

One Iraqi injured in the attack, A security source told Shafaq News Agency.

There was no claim of responsibility.

The Iraqi authorities issued warnings of repeated targeting of foreign forces and diplomatic missions in the country.

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.
