ISIS Used Captured American Humvee in Suicide Bombing Attack

Free Beacon [1] with the latest:

Islamic State terrorists used a modified U.S. Army Humvee to carry out a suicide car bombing in western Iraq last month.

A video [2] posted online Oct. 24 revealed that the Humvee had been fortified with metal plates and packed with explosives as a jihadist suicide bomber drove it into a Shiite militia base, causing a huge explosion.

The use of the Army vehicle appears from the video to have been part of the large amount of U.S.-supplied weapons and equipment captured by the Islamic State during its takeover of part of Iraq last year.
