Islamic State Using U.S. Arms Supplied by Saudi Arabia

Tuesday, September 9, 2014 | Tag Cloud Tags: ,

BAGHDAD (Worthy News)-- Islamic State fighters appear to be using captured US military issue arms and weapons supplied to moderate rebels in Syria by Saudi Arabia, the Agence France Presse reported.

The study by the London-based small-arms research organisation Conflict Armament Research documented weapons seized by Kurdish forces from militants in Iraq and Syria over a 10-day period in July.

The report said the jihadists disposed of "significant quantities" of US-made small arms including M16 assault rifles and included photos showing the markings "Property of US Govt".

It also found that anti-tank rockets used by IS in Syria were "identical to M79 rockets transferred by Saudi Arabia to forces operating under the Free Syrian Army umbrella in 2013". -- Source

  1. Barack Hussein Obama gave the Syrian rebels arms years ago to defeat the Syrian government, now they used those arms to go into Iraq after the US military pulled out leaving a power vacuum. And he's petitioning congress to do it again, to fight the same weapons he sent there the last time. And people wonder why his foreign policies are criticized...
