U.S. finds Iran missile systems in Iraq

BAGHDAD — Iran has been smuggling anti-aircraft missiles for attacks on the U.S. military in Iraq.

Officials said the U.S. military has found Mishagh-1 surface-to-air missile system in Iraq. U.S. military spokesman Rear Adm. Mark Fox said U.S. combat units have seized several Mishagh-1 systems in Iraq. In a briefing on Sept. 23, Fox did not say whether the Iranian SAM system was used against U.S. or Iraqi aircraft.

Officials said Mishagh-1 was manufactured in Iran and resembled a Soviet-origin shoulder-fired anti-aircraft system, Middle East Newsline reported. They said Mishagh-1 was unveiled and tested in an exercise by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps exercise in 2006.
The Mishagh was described as an indigenous man-portable Iranian air defense weapon equipped with an infrared guidance system.

In his briefing, Fox said U.S. troops discovered Iranian weapons caches throughout Iraq. He said the caches included RPG-29 rocket-propelled grenades, 240 mm rockets and explosively-formed penetrators. "In recent months, we have seen Iran smuggle advanced weaponry into Iraq, including RPG-29s, explosively-formed penetrators, 240 mm rockets, and the Misagh-1 surface-to-air, man-transportable surface-to-air missile," Fox said. On Sept. 22, an EFP, designed to penetrate U.S. armored vehicles, was detonated and killed a U.S. soldier in eastern Baghdad. Earlier, an Iranian 240 mm rocket was fired toward the main U.S. headquarters base in Iraq and one person was killed.
