According to enlightening reports published by the London-based Conflict Armaments Research group Wednesday, ISIS has begun manufacturing weapons in and around Mosul on an industrial scale. The possibility of this became a reality due to Turkey, who has begun providing manufacturable products in bulk to the terrorist group.
Between Turkey and Iraq, ISIS and its associates have managed to maintain a “robust and reliable” supply chain that has enabled its fighters to produce tens of thousands of weapons. Director James Bevan revealed that due to impending retreats by the organization, as Iraqi forces attempt to reclaim Mosul, the supply chain may temporarily cease. He assures though that while the manufacturing processes might halt, the terrorists will bring with them their expertise to do it again.
“Given that this group is so organized, they clearly see the writing on the wall in Mosul,” said Bevan. He also believes ISIS has relocated its highest trained bomb-makers out of Mosul and into Syria and southern Turkey. “They place a very high value on technical capacity and they will do everything they can to preserve it.”
It is likely, according to Bevan and his group’s findings, that ISIS will look to buying more “ingredients” to design and create more weapons on a fast-tracked, industrial scale following Mosul’s reclaiming.
