Gulf War II may be over. But Predator spy drones are still patrolling the Iraqi skies, according to UV Online.
During the past week an Apache helicopter destroyed a truck after a Predator unmanned aerial vehicle spotted four men loading ammunition onto the vehicle on the east side of the Tigris River.The four Iraqis were killed, according to Colonel Don Campbell, commander of the 4th Infantry Division's 1st Brigade.After the attack, another 13 Iraqis came back to the area and were also seen loading ammunition onto other vehicles. Apache helicopters were called back and attacked a building where the men took refuge. The attack triggered numerous secondary explosions, suggesting the building served as an ammunition storage centre, said Campbell.
