Two US convoys targeted in Iraq's Al-Nasiriyah

TEHRAN, Aug. 24 (MNA) – Iraqi sources reported that two convoys carrying logistics equipment for US troops were targeted in southern Iraq.

On Tuesday, the Sabereen News reported that two US military logistics convoys were targeted in the city of Al-Nasiriyah, the capital of Dhi Qar province in southern Iraq.

So far no group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Similar attacks against US troops in Iraq have been increasing in the past months.

Anti-US sentiments have been running high in Iraq since Washington assassinated top Iranian commander Ghasem Soleimani and the second-in-command of the Iraqi popular mobilization units, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, in January last year.

Following the attack, Iraqi lawmakers unanimously approved a bill on January 5, demanding the withdrawal of all foreign troops.

Many Iraqi groups consider the US forces present in the country as occupiers and emphasize the immediate withdrawal of these forces from their territory.
