On February 13, at least 21 ISIS terrorists were killed in the central Iraqi province of Saladin when their booby-trapped car blew up.
In an official statement, Major General Jabbar al-Darraji, Samarra Operations Commander, said that the terrorist who was supposed to carry out a suicide attack with the booby-trapped car blew it up near his comrades by accident.
“Before leaving one of the organization [ISIS] hideouts, the suicide bomber pressed the air horn button in the car to pay farewell to his comrades, forgetting that the button is weird to the explosive charge,” Maj. Gen. al-Darraji said. “As a result, the car went off, killing the entire group.”
The booby-trapped car was intended to target a checkpoint of the Iraqi Federal Police in the al-Jallam Samarra area south of al-Daur district.
ISIS has been attempting to step up its attacks in central Iraq since the start of the year. On January 21, a double tap attack by the terrorist group killed 34 and injured more than 110 others in the capital, Baghdad.
The accident in Saladin is not only a case of divine justice, but also a serious blow to ISIS cells and their neverending efforts to destabilize Iraq.
