Iraqi Intelligence Uncovers Anti-Aircraft Missiles Near Mosul (Photos)

Donate

The Iraqi intelligence uncovered a small weapons cache containing anti-aircraft missiles near the northern Iraqi city of Mosul on June 10.

“The Military Intelligence Directorate, Division 20, in cooperation with the 1st Brigade Intelligence Brigade, 21 Infantry Brigade, found a weapons cache in the Adayta Mountains, southwest of Mosul,” an Iraqi security source said in a press release.

The weapons cache contained at least two Soviet-made Strela-2 man-portable air-defense systems (MANPADS) along with two mortar cannons and several shells.

ISIS used similar MANPADs during the battle of Mosul between 2016 and 2017. The terrorist group’s fighters managed to shoot down several unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and at least one helicopter of the Iraqi military with this type of missiles.

These Soviet-made missiles were likely looted from the former Iraqi Army’s depots following the 2003 US-led invasion of the country, which lead to a state of chaos.

Despite being outdated and having a limited range of around 4km, Strela-2 MANPADs remain a serious security threat.

      • R3mba

        As I recall there was lots of Iran backed forces,Hezbollah and god Know how much did russians Help.. I cant believe percent of incompetence and failure this time..
        Like Wtf..And wtf you have air support when those jihad scum droves on open fields?!?!

        • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

          maybe you should go teach them a few things then?

          • Daniel Miller

            the pathetic part about the SAA is that the Iranains tryed and failed and it seems that the Russians have tryed and failed as well.
            This is a universal trait of all arab army’s i mean look at the saudis they make the exact same mistakes as the Syrians beeing incompetant idiots is in their arab blood.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            Hahahaha oh really? Tell me then which arab army is having more successful? Saudi shitheads or battle hardened SAA?

          • Daniel Miller

            Lol ” battle hardened SAA” are about as succsessfull as the Saudis.
            Without Russia and Iran the SAA wold have been gone by now and that is a fact.
            They are to unproffesional and incompetant to fight on their own.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            You are so wrong and stupid

          • Daniel Miller

            How am i wrong? And what did i say that was stupid?
            Proof me wrong if the SAA was so good they wont need Iran and Russia to do its job for it.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            IRA and russia offered to help, Syria invited them, is syria supposed to do all the fighting itself? Howabout its enemies? You have US, UK, FRANCE, TURKEY, ISRHAELL ALL SUPPORTING THE TERRORISTS YPU DUMB.MOTHERFUCKER!!!!!

          • Daniel Miller

            And so what? They are still millita.
            the SAA is pathetic the fact they need fully military support form Iran and air support from Russia proofs this.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            hahaha look at your terrorist rat buddies, you think they would ahve survived without turkey and US and israhell and NATO? get the fuck outta here

          • Daniel Miller

            considering how incompetant the SAA is yes and they did.
            the US only started supporting terror groops in 2013.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            the war started in 2011, wrong again bucko, why dont you get off this site and rethink your life?

          • Daniel Miller

            …thats my point the SAA lost to unsupported terrorists…that is pathetic the US only started to support them in 2013 2 years after it started…and in 2015 they almost got overran but Russia saved their asses.
            I am sorry but that is a fact the SAA are idiots they cant even defeat some rag tag militants in Idleb and these idiots want to take on the IDF…..

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            no im the smartest sexiest boy in town

          • Wang Dung Chung

            Another dumb American weighs in with useless insight

          • Daniel Miller

            Useless? m8 you are to dumb to realise that the SAA are the useless ones without Russia and Iran they are nothing.

          • Wang Dung Chung

            Those religious towel heads in combat seem rather useless at trying to take over a country and thankfully Assad has a sense of strategy and with some help is ridding the country of these parasites. In the time of those who are easily duped by misinformation never trust an American for their opinion when it comes to world events,

          • Daniel Miller

            And what dose that have to do with the fact the SAA are useless witout Russian and Iranian help?

          • Wang Dung Chung

            It exposes you Dan as a man that not informed

          • Wang Dung Chung

            Yes he is, a typical dumb thick American

          • Wang Dung Chung

            And without outside intervention by means of arming, funding, training and transporting religious foreign zealots the SAA would have had no war and yet still was able to contain these CIA/UK/France/Saudi/ Zionuts interventionists

          • Daniel Miller

            Ummm no they did not if Russia and Iran did not intervene assad wold be haning from a flag pole by now.

          • Wang Dung Chung

            The point is the USA/UK/Saudi/ Turkey/UAE/ Israeli armed, funded, trained outside mercenaries failed. Lost are kaput. Victory goes to Assad and to balance it out Iran and Russia aided but SAA forces did most of the difficult fighting. The people of Syria overwhelmingly support Assad over foreign opposition. Another nail in the coffin of the American empire

          • Daniel Miller

            …..is that why assade called for help…cuz they had it in the bag?
            Are you retarded? The SAA got its ass kicked by mercenaries…..let that sink in…

          • Wang Dung Chung

            Another stupid conclusion that never would have happened from another poorly informed American twit.

          • Daniel Miller

            oh yes its not like assad was begging for help form Russia or anyting…
