After the capture of Mosul by Islamist militants of ISIS, rumors spread across social media for days that the Mosul airport contained a fleet of American-loaned Blackhawk Helicopters given to security forces by the United States.
Today, the Islamist States of Iraq and Syria (“ISIS”) are confirming with the above image that they have indeed, seized control and have begun to operate at least one of these aircraft.
Iraqi officials are also confirming that at least one Blackhawk is now in the hands of ISIS militants and has already been used to attack military positions of the Maliki government.
