Report: ISIS Rebels Shoot Down Iraqi Helicopter With US Stinger Missiles

Back in 2013 Syrian Islamic rebels screaming “Allahu Akbar!” shot down a helicopter using US stinger missiles.

The Islamists are using US weapons to attack American allies.

U.S. officials with access to the latest U.S. intelligence on Iraq told Fox News it “appears likely/probable” that U.S.-made Stinger missiles have fallen into the hands of Sunni insurgents.

Today ISIS rebels shot down an Iraqi helicopter outside Fallujah.
They likely used a US Stinger missile.
IBT reported:

A helicopter belonging to the Iraq army has been shot down near Fallujah, during fighting between government forces and militants from ISIS – the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant. The news broke just hours after the Iraqi military released footage of airstrikes against ISIS positions north of Baghdad and boasted it had “regained the initiative” against the militants.

There are also reports the terrorists have seized the key city of Tal Afar, which sits on the main road between Mosul and the Syrian border. Unlike most of the other cities seized in recent days Tal Afar has a substantial Shia population.
