TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Videos have emerged online showing flames consuming three vehicles reportedly from an attacked US military convoy.
According to a security sources, militants on pickup trucks attacked a logistics supply convoy headed to a US military base in Iraq, forcing it to stop, getting the local contractors out of the vehicles, and torching the trucks, RT reported.
The incident happened on the Samawah-Diwaniya highway as the convoy, carrying supplies from Basra to one of the US bases in Iraq, came under attack by unknown assailants on Saturday night.
Videos and photos posted to social media, which purported to have captured the aftermath of the attack, showed intense flames engulfing the trucks.
The US-led coalition forces in Iraq often rely on local contractors to move supplies between their bases, but it was not immediately clear whose cargo, apparently including a flatbed truck carrying a Humvee and two empty fuel trucks, was destroyed.
