Nineveh Operations Command has announced on Monday that the Iraqi security forces have shot down a drone belonging to ISIS, south of the city of Mosul.

In a press statement, the Command said, “Security forces from the army’s 15th brigade managed, this morning, to shoot down a drone belonging to the Islamic State (ISIS/ ISIL/IS/Daesh) group in al-Raka village in Qayyarah area, south of Mosul.”

“ISIS was using the drone to monitor the front lines of Iraqi army,” the statement added.
