An ISIS fighter planned to kill members of Allied Forces by flying a drone over their heads and detonating a plastic explosive over their heads. Fortunately for the Allied Forces, the terrorist who wanted to take them out, wasn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer.
The Sun reports – The idiotic killer was targeting allied forces after the Battle for Mosul in northern Iraq.
He had customized his weapon to carry plastic explosive and planned to detonate it by troops based in the city.
But his plan backfired because he had forgotten to sufficiently charge the device.
Civilian drones — as weaponized by ISIS — automatically ‘boomerang’ back to their point of launch when they start to run out of power.
They are programmed to return to prevent owners from losing their machines.
UK troops — including the SAS — are training Iraqi soldiers as part of Operation Shader and are plagued by drone attacks.
A security source said: “We receive intelligence from locals about enemy activity and tactics.
“We learned this idiot had wired up his drone with explosives but was killed when it’s batteries ran low and it flew home.
“With a weak signal for some reason it detonated over his head.
“This caused quite a laugh for us but the drone threat is very real. The fighter killed himself last year due to his own ineptitude, but is still keeping moral high today.” ISIS has become advanced in its use of drone weapons, which it dubs its ‘air force’.
