Kurdish Peshmerga forces shoot down ISIS drone near Iraq's Mosul

The Kurdish Peshmerga forces shot down a drone from the so-called Islamic State [ISIS] on Friday evening near the Keske Junction on the Mosul frontline.

AhlulBayt News Agency - The Kurdish Peshmerga forces shot down a drone from the so-called Islamic State [ISIS] on Friday evening near the Keske Junction on the Mosul frontline.

“Peshmerga forces managed to shoot down a aircraft used by Daesh [ISIS] to observe and photograph Peshmerga positions,” Islam Chali, a Peshmerga officer told Kurdish News.

The drone was used by ISIS to carry out surveillance on Peshmerga positions.

The IS uses surveillance drones bought at the black market to spy on “enemy” positions.

Moreover, the ISIS group uses drone footage in their propaganda videos against their enemies.

When the ISIS militants attacked the Kurdish city of Kobane in northern Syria they published drone footage to show their various suicide attacks in the city.

The Kurdish Peshmerga recaptured the strategic junction of Keske from ISIS in January 2015, cutting off one of the main supply lines between the ISIS strongholds of Mosul and Raqqa.
