This from Al Masdar News:
Quote
A Canadian member of the Islamic State (ISIS) carried out a suicide mission for the terrorist group in the southwestern part of Mosul this week, Al-‘Amaq reported on Friday.

Identified as “Abu Maliha Al-Kanadi” by the Islamic State, this terrorist carried out a suicide bombing inside the Wadi Hajjar neighborhood of Mosul.

This attack killed at least 3 Iraqi Army soldiers in the process.
More from U of Waterloo analyst Amarnath Amarasingam via Twitter:

ISIS announces a Canadian suicide attacker in Mosul: Abu Maliha al-Kanadi

(...)

"Brother Abu Maliha blew up his car over Shia militia situated west of Mosul. Killed some soldiers." Nothing else is mentioned about him.

(...)

Some images from Wadi Hajar today, which was taken from ISIS by Iraqi forces, and the city in which Abu Maliha blew himself up.




(...)

Here is Wadi Hajar, where Canadian Abu Maliha blew himself up. Right on the front lines near Mosul airport.



ISIS released a video on their Amaq channel of what is very likely the attack. But no mention of the Canadian.

(...)

BREAKING: ISIS has released a photo of Abu Maliha al-Kanadi.

If the best he could get out of a pair of Semtex boxer shorts is three casualties, I'd call that mission fail and a piss poor return on investment. Could have done better with a drive by AK-47ing and live to be an ******* another day. Good riddance, shitbird.
Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

 Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats

Agreed.  Poor P&P.  Should have held out for a bit longer.  See http://army.ca/forums/index.php/topic,85928.msg1478825.html#msg1478825

Problem is the propaganda they get is considered at least a reasonable return on investment.
Good riddance, shitbird.

One less to come home, and I consider it good news that it happened on the western side of the river.   :nod:
