Attack on the US Army in Iraq - the first details of the attack

In northern Iraq, an explosion occurred along the route of a convoy with logistics equipment belonging to the Western US-led anti-terrorist coalition.

As reported by the al-Taghier TV channel, the explosive device detonated in the evening in the province of Salah al-Din on January 4, that is, the day after the anniversary of the liquidation of the Iranian military leader Qassem Soleimani.

This information was not officially confirmed, but according to sources, the explosion did not lead to human casualties, but only damaged the equipment.

So far, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Let us remind you that earlier before the New Year in the Iraqi capital Baghdad the US Embassy was fired at from a Katyusha rocket launcher.

It was also reported that US President Donald Trump ordered to reduce the number of the American contingent in Iraq from 5,600 to 3,000 troops. Until the end of his term, he wants to withdraw another 500 people from this country.
