An Iraqi soldier just won the hearts of many after infiltrating enemy lines on a mission that could have caused him his life. He has since been given the nickname the “Lion of Mosul.”
Using only a smock and scarf – and an AK-47, too! – Mohammed Qasim, 25 years of age, risked everything to infiltrate the enemy. His exploit led to the discovery of key machine gunners and, more importantly, sniper nests.
Mohammed Qasim helped win the war at Mosul by infiltrating the ISIS fanatics.
The Iraqi soldier was also able to shoot six ISIS fighters, all buried six feet down under. After his barrage, he quickly returned to his superiors. They later on covered every openings before gunning down the jihadis in what appeared to be an infantry attack.
Qasim’s heroic run surfaced during the battle in Mosul where he and his troops armed their way to the Old City. However, the ISIS rained them with bullets, halting their advancement, as reported by Daily Mail.

We are all very proud of what this soldier did. He is a very brave man. He makes us all hold our heads high.”
