In a new photo report purportedly released by the Islamic State, ISIS militants are shown conducting a suicide attack on Iraqi forces with an armored vehicle in the Tamim neighborhood of east Mosul. Earlier reports by Amaq News, the media arm of the Islamic State, allege that ISIS has completely retaken Tamim. Terrorism analyst Michael S. Smith II confirms. A summary released with the photo report reads: " A Martyrdom Operation and Some Clashes in Tamim Neighborhood." Viewer discretion is advised.
