A major, three-year-long report this week warned that thousands of weapons destined for Syrian opposition groups fell into the hands of Daesh (ISIS) jihadists across Iraq and Syria.The report published by Conflict Armament Research, a U.K. based weapons tracking organization, entitled "Weapons of the Islamic State," is the result of three years of research and on the ground field work across Iraq and Syria.The report also notes that in one instance, advanced anti-tank guided weapons (ATGW) manufactured in the EU, sold to the United States and subsequently supplied to a party in the Syrian conflict, fell into Daesh hands within two months of their purchase by the U.S.It notes that a particularly high proportion of the weapons and ammunition analyzed is relatively new, and had been delivered to the region since the onset of the Syrian civil war in 2011 .
