Iraqi forces seized three and one-half tons of weapons and explosives, including 27 Iranian-made missiles from a house in Wasit Province, southeast of Baghdad, according to reports in Arabic.

The weapons were uncovered during raiding and inspection operations in the provincial capital of Kut, al-Malaf Press writes.

The commander of the Iraqi Interior Ministry's rapid response force in Wasit Province, Col. Aziz al-Amara, told the agency that Iraqi forces found the weapons and explosives in a residence located in the al-Shuhada neighborhood of Kut, located in the north of the city.

The raid came following “precise intelligence information” regarding the location of the weapons, the officer said.
