In a six-minute-long release from Kataib Hezbollah, an Iraqi PMU group combatting ISIS, the fighting gets up close and personal in the outskirts of Tel Afar, Iraq. At around the three minute mark, the Hezbollah fighters clear a trench full of ISIS members by spraying it down with small arms fire, ensuring everyone inside of the trench is dead.
The rest of the video is a mashup of the fighting the group has encountered so far. While the resistance from ISIS in the area appears to be stiff, this PMU seems to be doing work. Not only on the ground, but behind the cameras as well.
It’s worth noting that this video looks as good, if not better than some of the most recent propaganda releases from ISIS. Let that sink in for a minute.
