Video alleging to show Iraqi security forces fend off a Daesh attack somewhere in the western deserts, complete with massive SVBIED and withering overhead fire.
Iraqi security forces hunker down in a wadi as the day’s light quickly fades. A firestorm of tracer’s streak above their heads and continue to engage all along the Iraqi position. The audible hiss’s, snap’s, and pops of incoming rounds lingers throughout the entire video. While the troops remain behind cover, a massive fireball illuminates the evening sky. An ISIS SVBIED detonates as the Iraqi troops are emplacing a mortar; a mushroom cloud slowly rises just a short distance from their position.
