Islamic State drone blowing up stadium ammo dump

October 25, 2017 | By | Reply More

An Islamic State drone filmed itself dropping a bomb which set off a chain of huge explosions at an ammunition dump inside a stadium in Syria.

stadiumIslamic State’s propaganda arm Amaq released the footage of the attack near the town of Deir Ezzor, where Syrian government forces have been fighting with IS for control since September.

It shows a bomb falling away from the drone and an initial small explosion which appears to set off a chain of larger blasts.

Government forces captured a military airport south of the stadium on September 9.

Iraqi forces are about to launch an offensive to recapture the last patch of Iraqi territory still in the hands of Islamic State, the military there said.

“Your security forces are now coming to liberate you,” said leaflets dropped by the Iraqi air force on the western border region of Al Qaim and Rawa, according to a statement from the Joint Operations Command in Baghdad.

The militant group also holds parts of the Syrian side of the border, but the area under their control is shrinking as they retreat in the face of a US-backed, Kurdish-led coalition and Syrian government troops with foreign Shiite militias backed by Iran and Russia.
