A member of the ISIS militant group accidentally killed himself and another 12 fellow militants when his suicide belt went off before a planned attack in Iraq.
Reports indicate that the militants were holing a small celebration to bid farewell to the aspiring suicide bomber before the planned attack in Diyala, eastern Iraq, when the militant’s belt exploded prematurely.
At least 12 terror operatives linked to ISIS died, police chief Jassem al-Saadi said in a statement, quoted by Iraqi News website.
Iraqi army recaptured eastern Mosul in January and is now fighting to retake control of the western part of the city. Troops are now retaking territories in Mosul’s Old City.
