DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:00 P.M.) – This weekend, a lone pickup truck carrying fighters from the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) was ambushed in the vast desert of Anbar province.

Subsequently, ISIS militants chopped off the heads of all three detained PMU troops. The ambush reportedly took place in the Said area of western Iraq near the border with Syria.

Viewer discretion is advised:


Anbar province remains an ISIS hotbed and the most dangerous place to be stationed in all of Iraq due to multiple raids, assassinations and ambushes occurring every single day.

Despite suffering devastating defeats at Mosul and Tal Afar not long ago, the Islamic State is still entrenched along a string of towns anchored on the Euphrates River, most notably around the long-standing jihadist stronghold of Al-Qaim.

My sympathies for the Iraqi soldiers.
The lesson from this is that the next time you may be ambushed, assume the worse and try and take a few of the head choppers with you.
