As you can see in the video, a truck bomb was detonated in an unsuccessful effort to take out Iraqi forces. WarLeaks gives a description of the action:
Iraqi soldiers faced a huge blast caused by the massive explosion of an IS Vbied right in front their position in Baiji Iraq. The soldiers [were] aware of the approaching vehicle and took cover behind a mound just moments before the detonation and following shockwave.
The attack was filmed from an overwatch position behind the Iraqi line and gives a good overview of the happenings. The attack seems to have apparently failed since the Iraqi soldiers targeted by the SVBIED seem mostly unharmed after the explosion.
During the G7 press conference in Germany Monday, President Obama admitted to not having a plan to combat ISIS. “When a finalized plan is presented to me by the Pentagon, then I will share it with the American people,” Obama said. “We don’t yet have a complete strategy.”
Obama made similar remarks when ISIS first made headlines last August. “We don’t have a strategy yet,” the president said at the time. “We need to make sure that we’ve got clear plans. As our strategy develops, we will consult with Congress.”
