Source: US base supply convoy under attack in southern Iraq

A supply convoy intended for a US military base came under attack in southern Iraq between the cities of es-Samawa and Diwaniya, an Iraqi security source told.

“Four trucks were subjected to an armed attack in the Najmeh area between Diwaniyah and es Samawah,” the source said.

According to the source, the trucks, whose drivers are Iraqi citizens, were transporting supplies from Bosra to one of the US bases.

The militants attacked the convoy in pickup trucks and forced it to stop, then took the drivers out of the trucks and set fire to the vehicles, and then disappeared in an unknown direction.
