ISIS militants killed by wild boars in Iraq

Miranda GreerApr 27, 2017

Wild boars reportedly killed three Isis fighters on Iraqi farmland controlled by the Islamic State on Sunday.

Speaker from the local government told to newspapers and magazines that ISIS planned an attack to the local tribesmen, who have had special brigades which were anti-terroristic.

"The area is dense with reeds, which are good for hiding in", anti-ISIS leader and local tribal chief Sheikh Anwar al-Assi told The Times.

"Experienced hunters say that wild boar can be even more unsafe to hunt than a bear", according to an article by Hunter Course, a hunting safety website.

The attack took place in the al-Rashad region of Iraq near Kirkuk, with the source adding that "Daesh (Islamic State) militants took revenge at the pigs that attacked the farmland". ISIS has complete control over the city, according to The Times.

The militants had recently committed 25 execution-style killings in Hawija, a nearby village known as an ISIS stronghold, al-Assi said.

Hawija is a strategic location about 100 miles from Mosul and on the edge of the oil rich region of Kirkuk.

Response in the United States to the unusual news was gleeful - likely a reaction to the brutality that ISIS fighters have shown, including beheadings and enforced sexual slavery of their victims. Judging from the bodies the Iraqis had recovered, it appeared that many had not bathed in weeks, according to the New York Times.
