SULAIMANI (ESTA) — An improvised explosive device (IED) hit a convoy for a contractor belonging to the U.S.-led Coalition forces in southern Iraq, Iraqi media reported on Saturday.

Shafaaq News cited a security source as saying that the IED detonated after a convoy transferring logistical support for the Coalition forces passed by it on the highway of Diwaniyah.

The explosion did not cause any casualties or damage, according to Shafaaq News.

The Iraqi government or the Coalition has yet to confirm the attack.

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.

On February 11, an IED hit a convoy for the Coalition forces in Baghdad, with no casualties.

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