Terrorists of the Islamic State in Iraq and Levant shell the Kuweires (Kwres/Quayres/Kwaires/Kuwayris) Military Airport in Aleppo with American M198 Howitzer cannons.
ISIS has seized more than 50 American Howitzer artillery weapons from the Iraqi military. Each of M198 Howitzers which has a GPS aiming system with a firing range of 20 miles cost half a million dollars.
It is very probable that ISIL would use these Howitzers to target Shiite holy sites in Samara and Karbala if they manage to besiege these Iraqi cities, as such hypothetical attacks would definitely demoralize the Iraqi army rapidly.
There are reports that US has destroyed at least one of these M198 Howitzers during its recent air strikes on ISIS near the Mosul Dam.
