Chaotic combat footage from Iraq shows Kurdish anti-terror forces raiding Kirkuk Mall to put an end to a hostage situation. With violence escalating throughout Iraq, the attack on the Jawahir Mall in Kirkuk by gunmen and suicide bombers left many dead.
The attackers reportedly stormed the Jawahir Mall, took shoppers hostage and positioned themselves on the roof of the 5 storey complex to open fire on approaching security forces from there.
While one can’t deny the bravery of improperly trained Kurds who took on the hostage takers, they should start taking proper military training seriously cause from this video they seem to be a threat to one another. I mean – what exactly were those two shooters between 7:00 and 7:07 doing? At 9:16 guy barely escapes death by back blast. At 14:18 guy stumbles after stepping on his ammunition belt while firing. At 14:22, mustache guy brings up his gun and his magazine falls out. WTF?
At 16:30 – I believe those are the remains of a suicide bomber who set his bombs off.
