On October 1, a convoy moving equipment for the U.S.-led coalition in the southern Iraqi province of al-Diwaniyah was targeted with a “guided missile.”

In an official statement, the Iraqi Security Media Cell said the convoy was struck as it was passing near the town of al-Shomali. The cell claimed that the missile didn’t explode.

“The attack damaged one of the [convoy’s] containers without causing any losses, the convoy continued to move towards its intended destination,” the statement reads.

Sabereen News, a Telegram Channel close to Shiite armed groups, confirmed that this was the first attack with an anti-tank guided missile on a U.S.-led coalition convoy.

In the last few weeks, a series of attacks targeted several convoys of the U.S.-led coalition in central and southern Iraq. The most recent attack took place two days ago. Improvised explosive devices were used in all previous attacks.

Iraqi Shiite armed groups affiliated with Iran are allegedly behind the recent wave of attacks against U.S. forces. These groups are apparently working to develop their capabilities and increase their attacks.

These attacks are believed to be a response to the assassination of Iran’s Quds Force Commander, Qassim Soleimani, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy-Commander of the Popular Mobilization Units.
