Geriatric jihadi: Elderly suicide bomber drives armoured truck full of explosives towards Iraqi base before blowing himself up as gloating ISIS fighters watch

  • Video released by ISIS appears to show elderly man in suicide mission
  • Shows OAP driving truck full of explosives before appearing to blow it up
  • Attacker reportedly targeting an anti-ISIS coalition base in Anbar, Iraq

A video released by ISIS claims to show an elderly man carrying out a suicide bombing against coalition forces in Iraq.

The elderly bomber, named as Abu Taybah al-Ansari, is seen talking to the camera before climbing into the truck, rigged with explosives.

The footage then shows the geriatric jihadi driving away, before detonating the vehicle in an attack reportedly targeting an anti-ISIS coalition base in Anbar, western Iraq.


The elderly man gives a final interview in the video, before being helped into the truck by a fellow ISIS fighter.

He is then seen driving off into the horizon, before an explosion is heard and a large black cloud rises to the sky.

Meanwhile, the U.S.-led coalition has targeted ISIS with two dozen strikes near 15 cities, the U.S. military said in a statement released on Tuesday.

Seventeen strikes in Iraq hit eight tactical units
