In Iraq, unknown attacked the supply column of a US military base

Attacks on the US military contingent continue on Iraqi territory. According to a source in the Iraqi security service, in the south of Iraq, an assault on unknown persons was carried out by a supply column of one of the US military bases.


According to the source, in the south of the country, between the cities of Es Samava and Diwa, the supply column of the American military base was attacked by unknown people. The militants in pickup trucks attacked the convoy, forced it to stop, and then took the drivers (all Iraqi drivers) out of the cars, the trucks were set on fire and hid in an unknown direction. What kind of cargo was not reported in the trucks, it is known that the trucks "delivered supplies" from Bosra to one of the US military bases.

Four wagons were attacked in the Najme region between Divaniya and Es Samava

- said the source.

The US command in Iraq has not yet commented on the attack, no official statements have been received.

Note that this attack by unknowns on the Americans is far from the first. Previously, the territory of the US military bases and the US Embassy in Iraq were subjected to rocket attacks.

In January, the Iraqi parliament voted to withdraw US troops from its territory in connection with the assassination of Iranian general Kassem Suleimani.

Recall that the United States has been in Iraq since 2003.

    The Germans in Stalingrad carried out supplies via an "air bridge". It's time for amers to lay the "rainbow of freedom". repeat
    The US command in Iraq has not yet commented on this attack,
    Shaw to comment, there are two ways: either to wash, or to bombard the desert.

      In Iraq, unknown attacked the supply column of a US military base
      Three trucks and trailers burned.
      Experts tend to view the attack as a response by Iranian proxies to recent American attempts, at the hands of Iraqi security officials, to arrest members of Kataib Hezbollah in Baghdad.

      So far, it’s only possible to hang a rainbow on the building of the embassy in Moscow ...

    Militants in pickup trucks attacked the convoy, forced it to stop, after which they took the drivers out of their cars (all the drivers were Iraqi), set the trucks on fire and fled in an unknown direction. What kind of cargo was in the trucks is not reported, it is known that the trucks were "carrying supplies" from Bosra to one of the American military bases.

    Either they brought sheets, or drinking water, or toilet paper. It is unlikely that much damage was done.

      It’s interesting not even what was being transported there, but that the mattresses were made clear that they were not “welcome” and that their logistics were vulnerable. It is good that the carriers were local and before the destruction of the convoy they were taken out of the cars, but they could have simply been fired.

          winked But this option will probably be closer to the truth! And the "attackers" knew the route, and parted with the "victims" amicably, without bruises laughing

              Alternatively, it could be the Kurds ...
              But the Iranians have a reason: yesterday the UN recognized the murder of the gene. Suleimani Americans illegal and unmotivated.

                The UN is not a court, its conclusions do not really mean anything, in my opinion. Although there is a reason to declare in a thread "tribunal". Let's see how Iran uses it.

      Very controversial. Most likely, the amers suffered irreparable losses. Fighting without toilet paper in the 21st century, when they stopped using the newspaper at 20 .... The fighting efficiency of the troops went into the red. request

    What interesting news though. Who could it be? Yes, anyone. Literally. There is a snake ball of interests from around the world.
    And where is the news from the Khabarovsk Territory? And Khabarovsk itself? There yesterday a river flowed from people through the streets. Tens of thousands took to the streets. And right now a little less deep-water but the river. The whole YouTube is flooded. It’s clear that we don’t like it when people go outside. It’s certainly if such news from Ukraine then another matter. Where are our free media? Where is our freedom of speech?

      "Freedom of speech" has not yet figured out how to react. Just in case, we decided to put pressure on the press secretary.
      But wait a bit and Soloviev will sing such trills that he will earn another villa.

        I would like to warn our "Freedom of Speech" in the color of the latest events from rash insults of the Khabarovsk residents. For any insults will come out with a stake. This is personally my only thing that I can advise in this situation. they are looking for a key to understanding how to justify what is happening is understandable, but how to find this cherished excuse when there is a total taboo on the topic in our media.

      Because it’s not the military. Civil Contractors.
      The Pentagon believes that this is easier. Yes, and you can pay for security. But the American military cannot pay the militants directly; it will come up, you won’t be ashamed. They pay the contractor and the terrorists. And everyone is happy ...

      And here, apparently, the contractor decided to save.

          Some things to learn from them. For example, their former soldier, who trains acting in a private training center, is much better than ours, guarding the parking lot.

          Shifting part of responsibilities to civilian contractors is not always a bad thing.

          But even such that is described in the article should not be lowered.

    And probably just the merchants shook.
    1) 4 trucks in total. 2) all the Iraqis 3) no amers, no guards nebilo. 4) where did they go, it is not clear: "to one of the American military bases" ???

    This is not about fuel oil in Siberia but not about Khabarovsk to write ...
