An attack targets the US-led coalition in Iraq


Shafaq News / An explosive device blew up on Saturday targeting a U.S. convoy in western Dhi Qar Governorate, southern Iraq.

“An explosive device blew up near Shahid Nizar control area, western Dhi Qar without causing any causality.”

The source did not give any further detail.

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.
