SULAIMANI (ESTA) — An improvised explosive device (IED) hit a contractor convoy in Babil province transferring logistical support for the U.S.-led Coalition forces, Iraqi media reported on Thursday.

Shafaq News cited an official as saying that the explosion targeted the convoy on Babil highway did not cause casualties.

It was the thirds attack against convoys supplying the Coalition forces in the province this week.

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

Last week, two explosions hit two convoys supplying the Coalition forces in Baghdad and Babil and an IED hit another convoy transferring coalition equipment for Iraqi forces in Dhi Qar.

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