The jihadi detonated explosives at a meeting in ISIS-controlled Qaim district in Mosul, Iraq, killing a number of leaders and himself.

It comes as bloodthirsty militants lose ground in their stronghold in Iraq, with their reign of terror confined to an area of about 1km square in Mosul.

Lieutenant Colonel Salam al-Obeidi believes only “a few hundred Daesh fighters” are left in the Old City.

Lieutenant Colonel Mohammed al-Tamim added: “Daesh members don’t turn themselves in.“And if they don’t get killed, their last option is to blow themselves up and commit suicide.”

Iraqi’s prime minister Haider al-Abadi last week declared ISIS had admitted defeat by blowing up a mosque at the heart of its savage regime.
