WARNING: The following video contains extremely graphic combat footage from the ongoing battle for Mosul. ISIS fighters film themselves as they conduct a raid on pro-Iraqi government Shia militia fighters of the Popular Mobilization Units (PPU) who were obviously caught off guard as their outpost is swarmed by the insurgents.
Rather than going toe-to-toe with the Islamic State fighters as they arrive, the militiamen attempt to flee on foot and achieve some standoff distance. They are mowed down by the dozens. There is a very important lesson to be learned here: Fight back. Viewer discretion is advised.
