‘Good job, but you roasted us, too! What is wrong with you, Abu Hajaar?’
VICE News has obtained footage taken from the head-cam of an Islamic State (IS) fighter who died in March while battling Kurdish Peshmerga troops in northern Iraq.
The clash took place about 30 miles north of Mosul. Unlike IS propaganda, which often presents sweeping battlefield victories, the video shows chaos, panic, and the fighters retreating.
The footage shows the utter chaos among a group of hapless IS fighters as they bicker and fumble around trying to fire weapons at Kurdish forces in Iraq.
They fumble around with one demanding a rocket from another. When he fires the rocket, smoke and debris shower the vehicle and knocks the IS fighter with the head-cam to his knees.
Another shouts: ‘Good job, but you roasted us, too! What is wrong with you, Abu Hajaar?’
Watch the video and you will realize that ISIS is a long way away from being a well oiled fighting machine.
