An attack targets the US-led Coalition in Iraq


Shafaq News / An explosive device blew up targeting the Global Coalition on the borders between Dhi Qar and Muthanna Governorates.

A security source told Shafaq News Agency that the explosion occurred on Tuesday targeting a convoy carrying logistical support equipment for the US-led Coalition while passing on the highway in the Sakna region.

No causality was reported.

There was no claim of responsibility.

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

On January 5, 2021, the Iraqi parliament voted by the 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.
