ISIS has infiltrated suburbs just eight miles from Baghdad’s international airport… and now wields shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles

An outer suburb of Baghdad located only eight miles from the city’s airport has now been breached by Islamic State (ISIS) forces as the jihadist group inches ominously close to Iraq’s capital.

The suburb of Abu Ghraib has been infiltrated by ISIS militants who are currently engaging in hit-and-run style attacks on local Iraqi security forces.

The well-armed ISIS army has flirted with advances close to the capital in recent months, but has not yet launched a full-blown offensive on Iraq’s largest city.
