Suicide mission: Irishman's final terror trip
Dubliner Khalid Kelly tried to recruit Irish ‘martyrs’ with an obese terror suspect months before he travelled to Iraq and blew himself up trying to defend ISIS’s sex-slave camps in Iraq.
On Friday, Kelly – who was born and bred in Dublin’s south inner-city – became the first Irish person to blow himself up in a sucide bombing as part of the bloody war for Iraq.
A propaganda channel for ISIS later claimed the blast on the outskirts of Mosul had claimed the lives of ‘tens’ of Shia fighters although the claim has not been confirmed.
The trained nurse was in a modified amoured car laden with explosives which exploded in Tal Afar, near Mosul, where ISIS fighters are involved in a desperate battle with Iraqi forces.
