Iraqi officials have discovered a missile manufacturing plant in the Anbar province which they believe belonged to ISIS, an official statement said, according to the Middle East Monitor. 

Thirteen missiles, 13 oxygen pipes and two 225 liter barrels of C-4 explosives were found in the plant in the town of Al-Qa’im, the Directorate of General Military Intelligence said.

All the items were taken and later destroyed by specialized government engineers.

Iraq declared victory over ISIS in December 2017 some three years after the group took control of large swathes of the country. Sleeper cells of the group’s fighters still exist in the country and carry out targeted attacks in a number of areas which the group previously controlled.
