The Use of Weaponised UAVs by the Islamic State: Analysis of DBIED Incident on Peshmerga Forces in the Mosul Dam Area
In October 2016, the Kurdistan Region Security Council (KRSC) invited Sahan Research to conduct an investigation in the Mosul Dam area on a Drone-Borne Improvised Explosive Device (DBIED) that targeted Kurdish security forces on 2 October 2016.
The KRSC provided Sahan Research with access to Kurdish security forces involved in the incident and supported the research team in documenting, analysing, and exploiting evidence from the DBIED. Sahan’s findings are outlined in this report.
