A military source said ISIS has obtained considerable quantities of weapons it uses against Syrian and Iraqi armies from Iraq’s Kurdistan.

The weapons include MILAN anti-armor missiles, G36 guns, ammunitions and heavily armored military infantry vehicles. According to the source, the government of Kurdistan has bought these weapons from European countries, namely Germany and France, a few months earlier.

The same source was not able to identify the method by which the terror group has obtained these weapons. However, this has most likely been arranged via black market dealers.

Well, only 30 Milan launchers were given to Peshmergas, without ’em, the Milan missiles would be simply useless!… IMHO, if ISIS had this stuff, this would be already well known as it’d had inflicted big casualties : although most have been 70’s and 80’s built, these are still VERY efficient against armoured vehicles or bunkers… As the “source” gives no numbers, the most plausible is that maybe a few missiles have been seized during an assault, but if a launcher had been taken, once again, the results would be really noticeable as a 2 men crew is able to blow… Read more »

The iraqi Army left plenty behind. Other countries are trans-shipping.

ISIS uses European and US weapons.

ISIS kills Syrian and Iraqi civilians.

ISIS sells oil stolen from Syria and Iraq at 1/3 market rate to NATO countries.

ISIS does not attack NATO or NATO allied countries but only NATO target countries.

ISIS is said to be a radical arm of Islam but credible proof illustrates that they were founded in Iraqi prisons run by the US and trained and funded and protected by NATO countries.

What do you believe?

That they’ve got their own agenda which looks to be rather apocalyptic and will use whatever they can to divide ans conquer… Most of weapons were seized from iraqi military bases when untrained soldiers fled their advances. As iraqi new armi is mostly armed by the US, the biggest seizures were western equipment. The fact is that there are some ppl with a double agenda, i.e. Turkey was NATO for a long time before the muslim-brotherhood backed Erdogan was in charge. Saoudia and Qatar seem to have a double agenda too. You can even consider that some US services are… Read more »
