SULAIMANI (ESTA) — An improvised explosive device (IED) hit a convoy for a contractor belonging to the U.S.-led Coalition forces in Babil province on Sunday, Iraqi media cited a security source as saying.

A security source told Shafaaq News that an IED exploded on al-Hawali road in Babil, targeting a convoy transferring logistic support for the Coalition forces.

The source said there were no casualties, but one of the vehicles of the convoy was damaged.

The attack is the latest in a series of attacks on convoys supplying the Coalition forces, training the Iraqi security forces to fight Islamic State (ISIS) militants in the country.

Washington blames Iran-backed militias for regular attacks on U.S. facilities and convoys in Iraq.
