The video above is an ISIS fighter blowing himself up to avoid capture.
According to The Daily Caller:
The bombing occurred near Hammam al-Alil, a town just south of Mosul, Iraq. Footage of the incident shows what appears to be Iraqi federal police with a TV crew, closing in on the ISIS fighter. The fighter then blows himself up before the police can reach him, sending his body parts across the field. Still shots taken from the video appear to show the bomber’s head flying off in the distance.
The curator of the Iraqi Day twitter account told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Kurdistan’s Rudaw TV broadcast the footage live. The affiliation of the reporters caught in the blast is unclear.
I share this video to bring awareness to the mindset of these radical jihadi’s overseas. We must do all we can to make sure these jihadis never reach our country.
