SULAIMANI — Iraq’s Security Media Cell said on Friday (September 18) that an Iraqi soldier was wounded after an improvised explosive device (IED) targeted a convoy operated by a contractor company working for the US-led Coalition in Ishaqi sub-district in Saladin governorate.

The soldier, who was not seriously hurt, is a member of the Samarra Commando Brigade’s Third Regiment, it added.

The attack is the latest in a string of attacks on convoys supplying the Coalition, which is engaged in a training mission to build up local forces to fight Islamic State (ISIS).
