BAGHDAD (Dispatches) – The U.S. planes have carried foodstuff and logistical aid to the Daesh terrorist group's most important base in Iraq's Salahuddin province, Iraqi sources said.
The Arabic-language al-Ma'aloumeh news website quoted head of al-Sharqat City Council Salih al-Sha'alan as saying that the U.S. planes have landed in regions near al-Makhoul mountain, which is one of the most important Daesh bases in Iraq.
He added that eyewitnesses have repeatedly reported that the U.S. planes have landed in the region, noting that they supply foodstuff and other logistical aid to the terrorists.
Iraqi sources have repeatedly reported the U.S. aircraft attempts to send military shipments to the Daesh in Salahuddin, Falluja, Mosul, and Diali and relocate the Daesh commanders to safe regions.
The director of the Badr Organization's office in al-Anbar province said in May that the U.S. Army troops had sent aid shipments for the Daesh terrorists in Western al-Anbar.
The U.S. troops sent foodstuff and medicine for the Daesh terrorists in al-Anbar's Western Sahara, al-Ma'aloumeh news website quoted Qusai al-Anbari as saying.
He pointed to the vast area and difficult terrain of al-Anbar province, and said the only way of access to the areas where the ISIL terrorists are stationed goes through air and the U.S. military choppers are the only aircraft flying to the region and supplying the Daesh terrorists with aid consignment.
