The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS BAR -

Pesh­merga forces man­aged to shoot down a survel­liance drone of Is­lamic State (ISIS) mil­i­tants in Kirkuk prov­ince.

A source from Pesh­merga told BasNews that Pesh­merga forces shot down an IS drone to­day, May 26, in Bashiqa front­line.

The sur­veil­lance drone was used by IS mil­i­tants to mon­i­tor Pesh­merga bases and move­ments in the area, he said.

Pesh­merga forces have thus far de­stroyed a num­ber of IS sur­veil­lance drones near Pesh­merga front­lines, and a Pesh­merga com­man­der pre­vi­ously warned that ISIS is able to trans­form the or­di­nary drones to sur­veil­lance drones.
