The war on terrorism is a costly one, but often we forget about the many children that fall victim to the cowardly tactics of terrorists.
A recent photo has surfaced on the Internet showing a suicide bomber carrying a baby moments before she blew herself up, killing both of them.
“The women are fighting with their children right beside them,” Lieutenant General Sami al-Aridi said. “It’s making us hesitant to use air strikes, to advance. If it weren’t for this we could be finished in just a few hours.”
The picture was originally captured on television by an Iraqi TV station.
100 Percent Fed Up reports:
She had apparently tried to detonate an explosives vest hidden under her hijab as she passed the soldiers, but it failed to go off until she had walked some distance away, a cameraman for al-Mawsleya TV said.
She was killed along with her child, while two soldiers and several civilians were injured.
The station had been filming the battle between Iraqi troops and ISIL fighters and did not realize what they had caught on camera until they reviewed their footage later.
ISIS has been resorting to increasingly disturbing tactics. A recent battle in Mosul resulted in an unprecedented amount of dead women and children and reports even suggested that ISIS militants were using them as human shields.
This is beyond disturbing. We must pray for the innocent children that have perished due to horrible people like this woman.
