“Seconds from detonation: Female suicide bomber holding her BABY is pictured moments before she blew the two of them up in Mosul in a bid to slaughter soldiers,” by Simon Holmes, Mailonline, July 9, 2017:
A photograph has emerged of a Mosul woman cradling her baby as she seemingly tries to escape the fighting that has ravaged her city.
However on further inspection it becomes apparent the Burka clad woman is also holding a detonator.
The picture was taken moments before the suicide bomber blew herself up, with her baby in her arms, as she walked past Iraqi troops.
The woman was walking out of a newly liberated area of the city with a group of fleeing civilians holding a trigger, bags and a young infant in her arms.
She had apparently tried to detonate the explosives as she passed the soldiers, but the bomb failed to go off until she had walked some distance away, a cameraman for local al-Mawsleya TV said.
She, her child and two soldiers were killed, several civilians were also injured in the blast.
Iraqi authorities are close to announcing the defeat of ISIS in the city whose territory has been cut to just 600 square metres over the past couple of days.
Troops are currently facing off with 200 ISIS soldiers and a selection of suicide bomber wives who are currently making a last stand in the ancient city.
ISIS’s Amaq news agency reported ‘fierce fighting’ around the riverside district of Maydan and said its fighters ‘were holding onto their fortified positions’.
‘The fighters of Islamic State are collectively pledging (to fight to the) death in Maydan,’ Amaq said in another online post.
