SLAMIC State (ISIS) commanders have been wiped out in a suicide bomb attack by one of their own terrorists.
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.
