Iraqi soldiers participate in mannequin challenge on front lines in Mosul

Pausing long enough for an ISIS sniper to line up a head shot, these Iraqi Army soldiers held perfect fire positions -rarely seen in battle- while participating in the ‘mannequin challenge” on a rooftop in Mosul.   In the Iraqi forces, where soldiers wear salvaged elbow pads on their knees in an effort to look Operator as F**k, being seen looking cool is just as important as staying alive.

It is not known if the soldiers proceeded to lift their rifles above their heads while firing indiscriminately after the video ends, but it is extremely likely.

On a serious note, all of the tired service members hope you can eradicate ISIS once and for all because none of them want to spend another 13 years there.

P.S. If you started wearing eye-pro and PT belts this damn war would be over already.
