Iraqi EOD Team Gets Important Lesson In Standoff Distance

An Iraqi EOD team learns an important lesson in standoff distance while destroying an ISIS IED near Tel Afar, Iraq. This is why you need training.

Nobody said that the Iraqi EOD teams were the cream of the crop. In fact, most of these guys are probably self trained out of necessity.

That self training becomes apparent in this video, when a group of “EOD” troops with the Iraqi army blow an IED in place, and don’t even come close to getting the proper amount of standoff distance between themselves and the device.

Look out for falling objects gents. They are closer then they appear.
