THE unmanned Reaper drone wiped out the ISIS unit using a 500lb GBU-12 guided smart bomb.
The Ministry of Defense reported that “a small group of extremists” attacked local security forces in Agbar, a province west of Baghdad. After Iraqi defense forces called for assistance, coalition fast jets attacked the terrorists with a 500lb GBU-12 bomb.
According to the MoD: ‘The crew of the Reaper successfully located them, and at an appropriate moment, with no sign of a strike posing any risks to friendly forces or any civilians, conducted a carefully planned attack with a GBU-12 guided bomb. The Iraqi forces subsequently reported that the threat had been eliminated.’
Similar attacks, using both drones and fast jets, were launched against ISIS suspects in August.
