In details, the PMU’s 2nd Brigade arrested a suicide bomber driving a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) while he was trying to cross the al-Muazafyn checkpoint around al-Fallujah. The terrorist was reportedly planning to target the civilians in center of the city.

“The 2nd Brigade’s engineer unit managed to dismantle the VBIED, which contained a large quantity of explosives, including C4,” the PMU media wing reporter said.

A day after the incident, Iraqi sources identified the suicide bomber as 14-year old Osman Ahmed Hammad Saleh. The PMU handed the terrorist over to the intelligence office of the Iraqi military’s 14th Brigade.

Saleh was a member of ISIS, which is well-known for recruiting minors. The terrorist group even has a dedicated unit, Cubs of the Caliphate, for training minors on terrorist activities.

    Thank Heaven the attack was thwarted. Even saved one 14 year old. Will Iraq ever fix their ISIS problem?

      It depends, will your precious USA, NATO & Israel ever stop funding, arming, training and airlifting ISIS to and from different battlefields in Iraq & Syria?

        At least we agree someone in power is funding ISIS. We might also agree Erdogan is funding ISIS. We might also agree Obama created ISIS and funded it initially. Where we disagree is I believe Trump-US does not support ISIS and is killing them off. I also believe Russia-Syria-Iran coalition actions in al Safa indicate they are now supporting ISIS and directing ISIS to fight Kurds-US.
