ISIS VBIED Gets Taken Out By Charging Iraqi Soldier

first published on September 10, 2015 by

As an ISIS VBIED (Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device) charges towards an Iraqi outpost, one Iraqi RPG gunner rushes down the hill away from his outpost to get into a firing position capable of striking the speeding truck. The building he was guarding can be seen briefly at 0:34.

At 0:35 the RPG strikes the vehicle, but unfortunately at 0:39 the VBIED creates an explosion so large that it looks like the fireball engulfed the extremely accurate RPG gunner. If it weren’t for the actions of this lone soldier, the VBIED would have most certainly gotten within range to completely destroy the entire outpost within a few more seconds.

This clip was taken from a longer video released by ISIS showing multiple attacks over the past month, and unfortunately ISIS claims that the base shown in this video was later overrun after more attacks.
