Iraq: Ashab Al-Kahf Downed A US Drone
ISWNews Analysis Group: The Ashab Al-Kahf group released images claiming responsibility for downing a US reconnaissance drone in the Al-Siniyah area in Salah al-Din province.
According to the published images, the attack was carried out with a surface-to-air missile.
The group issued a statement announcing the destruction of US drone in retaliation for the martyrdom of two members of the al-Hashd al-Ashayeri members who were targeted by US drone lately.
After the attack, American fighter jets began a large-scale air patrol in the area.
Al-Siniyah region is of great importance in maintaining the security of the region due to its proximity to K2 airport, as well as the transportation role of Mosul-Tikrit road and Al-Haditha road.
