A BBC reporter, embedded with Iraqi Special Forces in Mosul, manages to capture the moment a massive SVBIED strikes their convoy. Following immediately after the explosion, Daesh fighters ramp up the pressure with a small arms attack using the confusion and chaos to their advantage.
Five Iraqi Soldiers were killed in the blast. The resulting firefight lasted for close to 3 hours before the Iraqi Special Forces team could finish the fight and evacuate all of their dead and wounded.
