VICE News obtained footage taken from the HelmetCam of an ISIS fighter who died last month during a battle in Iraq.
The clash took place about 30 miles north of Mosul and shows bumbling and inexperienced ISIS fighters getting soundly defeated by the Kurdish Peshmerga.
The HelmetCam also shows the ISIS fighters in total disarray, shooting randomly, and bickering among themselves.
In the graphic video taken from the body of an ISIS jihadist who died on the battlefield in March, the terrorists say an emotional farewell to a suicide bomber.
“May God be with you my brothers, send my regards to my good mother, don’t be sad for me,” the terrorist says as he gets into an armored car.
A fighter then runs to hug him.
The video also shows the ISIS terrorists driving a makeshift vehicle towards the Kurds in an open field.
One fighter yells at Abu Hajaar as he shoots a machine gun.
“Watch out!” the fighter yells. “The bullet casings are hitting us!”
They are shooting aimlessly, fumbling for a rocket launcher, and using the weaponry unsafely and haphazardly!
One of the ISIS fighters asks,
“The rockets for [firing at]people or armored vehicles?”
The inside of the vehicle is filled with smoke and debris from rocket backblast which also hits the ISIS fighter wearing the HelmetCam.
“Good job, but you roasted us too,” the nervous fighter says after the rocket is fired.
As the ISIS terrorists are about to fire another rocket, their vehicle is hit.
It kills the driver, and the ISIS fighters are forced to leave the vehicle and flee out into the open field.
“I’ve been shot,” the ISIS HelmetCam fighter yells.
The footage that remains shows the hit ISIS fighter as he rolls on the ground, haphazardly shooting… then goes dark.
I have never seen anything like it. It is much different than the well coordinated ISIS propaganda videos we are so well familiar with.
Watch the video yourself. It is truly amazing to see the ineptness. It’s the Keystone Cops!
