US Sending Iraq 1,000 Anti-Tank Missile Systems

Washington (AFP) – The United States is sending Iraq 1,000 anti-tank missile systems to help fight suicide car bombings, which played a “devastating” role in the capture of Ramadi by Islamic militants, a top US official said Wednesday.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi asked the US administration for weapons systems to help counter car bombings during a recent visit. “We made the decision immediately while he was here to get 1,000 AT4 anti-tank systems to Iraqi security forces and those are going to be arriving fairly soon,” a senior State Department official told reporters.
