Mohammed Qasim, 25-year-old, special forces hero is getting just praise for his bravery going undercover in ISIS to kill six members of the enemy.
Qasim gathered crucial intelligence very deep behind ISIS lines where he shot and killed six enemies. He’s being given the nickname “Lion of Mosul.”
This guy’s really brave and deserves an award. Too bad bravery awards nowadays go to people like Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner.
We’ve reached a turning point in that the Iraqi military is finding such competence and courage in its armed forces. I think they have a good future at securing their nation against those who would drag Iraq into the 7th century.

A soldier on a perilous mission to gather crucial intelligence deep behind Islamic State lines during the ferocious battle of Mosul shot dead six enemy fighters.
The fearless special forces hero Mohammed Qasim, dubbed the Lion of Mosul, disguised himself as one of the fanatics and conned them into believing he was one of them.
The Iraqi discovered the location of ISIS positions and key sniper and machine gun teams.
Last night senior Iraqi officers applauded the 25-year-old’s actions.
General Abdul Wahab al-Saadi said: “We are all very proud of what this soldier did. He is a very brave man. He makes us all hold our heads up high.”
As fighting continued to rage in the ruins of Mosul’s Old City in the last days of the battle in northern Iraq, Mohammed blended in with the IS troops by swapping his M4 rifle for an AK-47 and wearing a scruffy smock and scarf.
He and a comrade then sneaked behind enemy lines.
After noting down the vital positions and pinpointing where IS were holding ammunition, Mohammed quickly shot dead six of the fanatics.
Then he and his colleague picked their way back to their own lines and briefed commanders on what they had learnt.
Soon after that the Iraqi special forces ground troops were able to smash IS with mortar bombs and air strikes before launching a full-on infantry attack.

This soldier did his job like he was supposed to. I give props to Iraq military for fighting for what they want. They want to be seen as a peaceful nation and doing this is a step in the right direction. Good job Iraq.
