ICC Note: The Islamic State is using sick and desperate tactics on the Mosul front line battle. Recent footage published by the group shows militants strapping explosives to a puppy to be sent out to blow up enemy troops. There is no end to what ISIS will do to maintain their land grab.
03/01/2017 Iraq (Christian Post): The Express shared a link to the video, published by the PMU, or Al-Hashd Al-Sha’abi militia group which is fighting IS, showing three jihadits wrapping a small brown puppy with explosive devices, before sending it to the front line.
The report noted the authenticity of the video is not yet clear, but the fighters who hold the dog still explain that they are strapping four bottles, likely filled with shrapnel, to its body. The jihadists apparently claim that the bomb could kill three to four people.
“ISIS has just sent an innocent animal with explosives wrapped around it to our position to try and blow our troops up,” the PMU group members said, revealing that they later managed to disarm and rescue the dog.
“[The] animal is being sent to the Baghdad Zoo for a nice break from the war zone and well away from ISIS fighters trying to blow animals up for their sick war.”
