Kurdish Forces Repel Islamic State Suicide Bomber Near Euphrates Dam

Kurdish forces involved in the ongoing US-backed military operation to capture the Euphrates Dam from the Islamic State in the Raqqa province neutralized several IS suicide bombers and at least one car bomb in clashes in Ajil al-Sharqi on April 1.

The footage shows an ongoing firefight between Kurdish and Islamic State fighters, as well as the moment of detonation of at least one IS explosive device.
