BAGHDAD (Sputnik) – Two logistical support convoys belonging to the US-led international coalition in Iraq were targeted by two explosive devices in the country's central and southern provinces, a local security source told Sputnik on Monday.

"The first explosion took place on a road in the Babil governorate in the direction of Al-Diwaniyah, while the second occurred on a highway near the city of Nasiriyah [in the Dhi Qar province]," the source said.

No casualties have been reported – only the wheels of the convoy vehicles were damaged by the blasts,  the source added.

Iraq declared victory over the Daesh* at the end of 2017. However, Iraqi forces, assisted by the US-led coalition, continue raiding dormant terrorist cells scattered around the country.

*Daesh (IS/ISIS/ISIL) is a terrorist group banned in Russia.
