ISIS Has $1B Worth Of US Humvee Armored Vehicles; One Was Used In Suicide Bombing Near Baghdad

How did ISIS get $1Billion worth of Humvee Armored Vehicles?

As Islamic State group fighters pillage their way across swaths of Syria and Iraq, they’ve managed to build up their military capability by commandeering U.S.-made Humvee armored vehicles, including one used Monday in a suicide bombing at an army base near Baghdad that killed at least 45 people. In an interview on Iraqiya TV, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said ISIS gained thousands of Humvees when it overran the northern city of Mosul on June 10 of last year.

“In the collapse of Mosul, we lost a lot of weapons,” Abbadi said an interview Sunday, as translated by Al-Jazeera. “We lost 2,300 Humvees in Mosul alone.”

The theft of a fleet of American-made military vehicles underscores the difficulty of ensuring that U.S. military aid doesn’t wind up in the hands of the enemy it’s aimed at defeating.
