A column of American equipment burned on the way to the base in Iraq


In the south of Iraq was burned a column of American equipment. This was reported to local media by a source in the Iraqi security service.


The source said that the American army supply convoy consisting of four trucks was attacked when transporting property from the port city of Basra (the country's sea gate) for one of the US bases in this country. The attackers moved on off-road vehicles and were armed. By their actions, they forced the convoy to stop, then drove Iraqi drivers out of the trucks and set fire to the wagons. After that, the attackers fled the scene. What kind of cargo was in the trucks, the source did not specify.


According to the source, the attack was committed in the area of ​​Najme (province of Ad-Diva) on the road between the cities of Es Samava and Ad-Diva. The US military has not yet commented on what happened.

A column of American equipment burned on the way to the base in Iraq


It should be noted that the south of Iraq is inhabited by Shiites, who are not enthusiastic about the presence of US troops in their country since 2003. Therefore, attacks on American columns are not uncommon here.

At the same time, Washington practically does not hide that the American military presence in Iraq is used not so much to fight ISIS (an organization banned in Russia), but as a lever of pressure on neighboring Syria and Iran, as well as destabilizing the region as a whole. Therefore, it is not surprising that the Iraqi parliament back in January 2020 voted to withdraw US troops from their country. However, the Americans are in no hurry to fulfill this requirement.

    - Ha, ordinary criminal showdowns ...

    The source said that the American army supply convoy consisting of four trucks was attacked when transporting property from the port city of Basra (the country's sea gate) for one of the US bases in this country.

    The attackers moved on off-road vehicles and were armed.

    - Armed ... - what a horror !!! - And the attacked column, of course ... - went "to the mother-in-law for pancakes" ... - without a single machine gun and without a single Kalashnikov assault rifle (or whatever the Americans are arming their "Iraqis" with) ... - Probably the Americans are so told their Iraqi drivers: "Drive to 5th Avenue; then at the traffic lights turn left, then left again ... - and you are already" in Las Vegas "" ...
    - They went to Las Vegas ... - Well ... they arrived ...

        "Supply convoy" and "American equipment column" are two slightly different concepts.

      These are partisans, they operate in the occupied territories of their country and their actions are legal. Do you want them to break through on their jihad mobiles to Amer’s bases?)))

    On other resources, militants burned 4 trucks of local merchants.
    There were no Americans at all.
    Did they bring something to the Americans? Allegedly, yes, but not 100%. Now gasoline is going to rise in price.

    Dear Kristallovich (Ruslan), we recently had a discussion about the reliability, relevance and relevance of the images and the content of the headings and articles themselves on this resource. I was then a little surprised at how the picture of the not-so-common aircraft that appears in the article was really well-chosen. Then you answered me: "We have never had an absurd design of materials." Do you still think that the picture placed under a loud, and by and large, not corresponding to the event that happened, has anything to do with what happened? From all this, it seems, the reader deliberately creates a false initial impression of the attack on the US Armed Forces convoy and the real significance of the event? Or did the person who designed it did not read the article itself?

      This is a really significant event. People wake up, there are victims of the Amer regime who have lost their loved ones, and these are future martyrs (I see nothing wrong with protecting my homeland, even at the cost of my life). These creatures are not so relaxed, they are sitting at the bases - and this is good.
