Daesh has created a well-functioning industrial system for arms manufacturing in the occupied Iraqi northern city of Mosul, a UK-based monitoring organization said in a Wednesday report.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Conflict Armament Research had published the report dubbed Standardisation and Quality Control in Islamic State's Military Production, which described the situation with weapon manufacturing in eastern Mosul.

"Although production facilities employ a range of non-standard materials and chemical explosive precursors, the degree of organisation, quality control, and inventory management, indicates a complex, centrally controlled industrial production system," the monitor said.

The organization added that the system created by the terrorists allowed them to produce weapons at a range of specialized plants in line with precise technical guidelines and under strict monitoring system.

"To function, this production line requires a sophisticated monitoring system, in which manufacturing facilities regularly report detailed figures on production rates and the quality of output to a central procurement and production authority," the monitoring center added.

Daesh, a terror group outlawed in Russia and numerous other states, took control of Mosul in 2014.
