Between April 11 and 14, six convoys moving supplies and equipment for the US-led coalition in Iraq came under attack.

The attacks took place as follows:

  • On April 11, a supply convoy was targeted in the area of al-Hajaj in the northern province of Saladin. A new group calling itself the al-Sabiqun Division claimed responsibility and shared a video of the attack.
  • On April 13, a supply convoy was targeted near the city of Samawah in the southern province of al-Muthanna. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.
  • On April 14, a supply convoy was targeted near the city of Nasiriyah in the southern province of Dhi Qar. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet. Nevertheless, the Sabereen News Telegram channel released photos showing the aftermath of the attack.
  • The fourth supply convoy was targeted in the southern province of al-Diwaniyah. The Islamic Resistance in Iraq – ‘Ashab al-Kahf claimed responsibility for the attack.
  • The fifth supply convoy was targeted in the central province of Babylon. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.
  • The sixth supply convoy was targeted in the district of Yusufiya near the capital Baghdad. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.

All six US supply convoys were targeted with improvised explosive devices, the go-to weapon of pro-Iranian factions in Iraq.

The recent attacks on US-led coalition convoys and bases in Iraq are a response to the assassination of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy-Commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units, and Qassim Soleimani, Commander of Iran’s Quds Force. The attacks are meant to push US forces out of the country.

“Resistance” forces in Iraq stepped up their attacks recently. Late on April 14, a drone was used for the first time in an attack on a US base in Erbil International Airport.
