Iraq: US UAV Destroys IS Launching Pad

Sources within the American army said that an American Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) attacked and destroyed a mortar shell launching pad belonging to the Islamic State (IS) in northern Iraq, used to launch mortar shells at Kurdish rebels protecting citizens as they attempted to flee the region.

A senior American official said on Monday that “The United States does not intend to expand its areas of attack in Iraq, beyond the Kurdish region in the north.”
