Attacks on US convoys have increased over the past two years in Iraq, and some groups have been able to target US military bases in Ain Al-Assad in Al-Anbar Province, which is repeatedly targeted, Al-Harir Base in Erbil, and Victoria Base near Baghdad International Airport.
Last year, the Iraqi Resistance factions threatened to target US occupation forces and interests in Iraq if they did not withdraw from the country, following the US announcement that its troops will "continue to assist the Iraqi government in an advisory role."
