DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:25 A.M.) – Amaq Agency released three pictures on Sunday showing an armed ISIS drone striking an alleged Iraqi Army training facility in the Tal Zalat area west of Mosul.

ISIS has deployed armed drones dozens of times in the past across Syria and Iraq although the technology remains fairly non-sophisticated, utilizing a grip-release device on explosive shells mounted on commercial drones.

Amaq Agency also claimed an Islamic State assault on Jabal Atshanah west of Mosul destroyed three Humvees and caused Iraqi troops to flee the hilltop.

Meanwhile, heavy clashes continued inside Mosul city as both sides killed dozens of enemy combattants on Sunday. With ISIS slowly running low on ammunition, the Iraqi Army is gradually pushing through western Mosul amid an exhausting attritional battle.

Upwards of 90% of Mosul city has been liberated thus far although Amaq Agency claims over 9,000 Iraqi troops have been killed in combat consequently.

How long will it be before we see these flying bomb machines being used in Europe ?

The monsters of terrorism that were spawned by the greedy Elite of Western and Gulf nations to fight Western proxy wars in Syria ,Iraq,Libya et al and the terrorists are now feeling betrayed.

The terror gangs are totally amoral and to make things worse, they worship ‘death’ in Jihad as a welcome culmination of their time on earth.

The seeds have been sown. Will the West choke on the harvest ?
