On August 9 local time, Iraqi security authorities confirmed that a civilian convoy carrying equipment for the international coalition forces was hit by a roadside bomb attack in the southern province of zijar, causing damage to a vehicle. The situation of vehicle borne equipment and casualties is unknown.
this is the third time that the international coalition forces have been attacked in the past month.

On July 19, the logistics convoy of the international coalition forces was attacked by two explosive devices in zikal Province, causing damage to vehicles and goods to varying degrees.
so far, no organization has claimed responsibility for these attacks, but Iraqi Shi’ite armed groups have said that if the United States refuses to withdraw its troops from Iraq, it will continue to attack the US military and relevant institutions. (Fu Xinri, head office reporter)
