SARAJEVO: Bosnia donated 500 tons of ammunition to Iraq as aid to fight the Islamist State group, a defense ministry official said on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila). “By doing so our country will contribute to the fight against terrorist organization Islamist State (IS),” the ministry official told Agence France-Presse. Bosnia’s tripartite presidency agreed the donation on a US request that Bosnia “joins the coalition against the Islamic State group,” the source added. The donation is part of some 16,000 tons of arms and ammunition left over from the 1992-1995 inter-ethnic war in Bosnia that the authorities plan to either destroy or donate to other countries by 2020.
