Two ISIS Leaders Blown Up…By Their Own Bomb!

According to Peshmerga officials in Kurdistan located in northern Iraq, a roadside bomb planted by the Islamic State was detonated when triggered by a passing ISIS convoy.

The blast, which happened last week, left two ISIS leaders dead.

Ali Hussain, commander of the Mekhmour front told Rudaw, a Kurdish newspaper:

“A mine had been planted by ISIS troops in previous battles in the village of Kharbadan to target the Peshmerga, the vise versa happened, killing two of the group’s local leaders on the front,One of the slain Emirs [Leader] was the group’s administrator in the area named Abu Malik, and the other one named Abu abdul-Aziz”

Numerous ISIS convoys were moving through the area at the time but it looks like communication within this branch of the terror group isn’t the strongest.

The frontline of Mekhmour is located between the ISIS stronghold of Mosul and the Kurdish capital of Erbil.
