So far this week 100 boats of Islamic State militants have been blown to bits. That’s good news for us! The video just released shows militants fleeing the boats right before it’s blown sky high.
Coalition forces have this week blown up 100 boats of Islamic State militants desperately fleeing Mosul.
Video footage captured the boats being struck as they crossed the Tigris River which runs through the Iraqi city.
The cowardly militants had taken to the water to escape the east of the city which has been secured by Iraqi forces in recent days.
Since the Mosul operation began in October, 112 ISIS boats have been struck on the Tigris.
Iraqi generals have been celebrating gains in recent weeks, but the final push to secure Mosul is ongoing.
Lt. Gen. Abdul-Ghani al-Asadi enjoyed a celebratory tour after the city’s east was declared largely liberated on Wednesday.
