Over the years, we have seen a drastic change in the way the Iraqi Army fights. Before, it would not be uncommon to see the Iraqi Army fleeing a position at the first sign of opposition. In this video though, we see an entirely different version of the nation’s army.
While the small platoon of soldiers finds themselves on the receiving end of a brutal Daesh raid, they never stop fighting back. Throughout the duration of the video we can see the soldiers shooting, moving, and communicating with each other about the situation. They know that they are badly out-numbered, and out-gunned by the raid force, but that doesn’t stop them from making a last stand.
This video serves as evidence that the Iraqi people are serious about removing the threat of the Islamic State from their country. It shows us that they are willing to fight down to the last man on any position in attempt to just take one more of the Islamic State fighters down with them. These men were brave individuals.
