An airstrike conducted on March 17 reportedly destroyed a drone being used by ISIS militants outside of Fallujah, Iraq, according to the US military. The so-called "model airplane" was not sophisticated, US military officials confirm.
It's unknown what the extremist group was using the drone for, but it was likely involved in conducting reconnaissance in the immediate area - and It's unknown how many drones the group may have.
"We observed it flying for approximately 20 minutes," said Army Col. Steve Warren, Pentagon spokesman, in a statement to the media. "We observed it land. We observed the enemy place it in the trunk of a car and we struck the car. It was a commercially available, remotely piloted aircraft, really something anyone can get."
