According to a ground source, the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), a predominately Shi’ite militia force fighting ISIS, has discovered a structure that appears to be an attempt at a home made aircraft.

ISIS has no flight capabilities, which makes this endeavor an ambitious attempt. Details were not given on how successful this project was.

The PMU found this attempt of a constructed aircraft on the outskirts of Mosul, where they are currently fighting ISIS terrorists in Nineveh Province, but not in Mosul city proper.
