A US Boeing CH-47 Chinook helicopter landed near the village of Mak’houl in al-Jazeereh region controlled by ISIS terrorists on January 28, according to various pro-Iraqi and pro-Syrian sources.
Initially, the information appeared in English in the Iranian Fars News Agency which quoted a member of the Iraqi Parliament, Sattar al-Qanem. Then it was spread across various pro-government media outlets and blogs.
Fars News reports:
Sattar al-Qanem quoted sources in the Iraqi army intelligence and the country’s popular forces of Hashd al-Sha’abi as saying that an American Chinook helicopter on Saturday landed in al-Jazeereh region near Salahuddin that is controlled by the ISIL terrorists.
In the meantime, another American aircraft landed in an ISIL—held region near the village of Mak’houl North of Salahuddin.
Member of Security Commission of the Iraqi Parliament Hassan Salem said that the US army aircraft was carrying food stuff and arms for the ISIL terrorists in al-Jazeereh region near the village of al-Salam and was on a mission to take some of the ISIL commanders and members away from the region.
“We will not keep mum over the landing of US military aircraft in ISIL-held regions,” Salem underlined.
The agency added, citing Al-Waqt news website, that last October two military helicopters of the US-led coalition delivered number of weapons and military equipment to ISIS members in the Iraqi province of Diyala.
