The Pentagon said Tuesday that a delivery of 2,000 anti-tank rocket systems has arrived in Iraq, which will help Iraqi forces combat vehicle bombs used by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

“The 2,000 AT-4s were delivered in theater in recent days and 1,000 were provided to [the government of Iraq],” said Pentagon spokeswoman Navy Cmdr. Elissa Smith.

“The remainder will remain under control of [the U.S.-led military coalition] to be used for training [Iraqi forces] and for contingencies,” she said. […]
