At least one of the five suicide bombers who denoted their suicide trucks on the pro-government Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) west of Mosul on Friday was a foreign fighter from Europe, the Islamic State bragged.

Al-Jazirah, an ISIS outlet, posted a picture of ‘Abu Usama al-Irlandi’ posing in front of the VBIED (vehicle-borne improvised explosive device) he used to attack the PMU as their forces charged through ISIS-held desert territory in the Niniveh Governorate.

The man, who was born in Dublin and converted to Islam, also went by the alias ‘Khalid Kelly’.

Meanwhile, the Iraqi Armed Forces continue to advance on all fronts surrounding Mosul. In the eastern part of the city, Iraqi government troops have already seized several neighbourhoods during fierce urban clashes.

It is estimated that over 27,000 foreign fighters have travelled to Iraq and Syria since fighting broke out in 2011.
