Kurdish Peshmerga Serve Up Explosive Justice On Would-Be ISIS Suicide Bomber [VIDEO]
A new video posted to YouTube on Thursday depicts a group of Kurdish Peshmerga fighters blowing up an ISIS suicide bomber before he could detonate his payload.
The video footage shows what appears to be a convoy of Peshmerga fighters on a road near Mosul, Iraq. In the distance, a vehicle laden with explosives (also known as a VBIED, or Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosive Device) heads directly for the Peshmerga at high-speed. Peshmerga fighters then open fire on the vehicle with small arms fire and heavy ordnance.
“It’s coming closer and closer,” says a man off camera. “Come on, hurry and hit it!”
Just as the suicide bomber makes his final approach, a large explosion brings him and his vehicle to an immediate halt. The man off camera gives a loud cheer, as do the surrounding soldiers.
