London, Dec. 13 – Iraqi security forces have uncovered a cache of Iranian-manufactured rockets and turned them over to the Coalition, the U.S. military announced on Thursday.

Iraqi Civil Defense Corps personnel delivered 14 107 mm Iranian rockets and fuses to Kazakhstani Soldiers, said 1st Lt. Almaz Mukashev, the Kazakhstani liaison officer.

The Multi-National Corps – Iraq (MNC-I) said in a statement that the rockets were manufactured in 2006.

The ICDC specialises in explosive ordnance disposal. Its head is Iraqi Maj. Gen. Abdul Rasul.
