(Newsweek) Three militants loyal to the Islamic State group (ISIS) have been killed by wild boars as they planned to ambush Iraqi tribesmen opposed to the group, according to a local anti-ISIS leader.

At least eight ISIS fighters had reportedly taken cover among dense reeds in Iraq’s al-Rashad region, about 55 miles southwest of Kirkuk, in preparation for a surprise attack on local anti-ISIS tribesman when a herd of wild boars attacked the jihadists on Sunday, killing three. The militants likely disturbed the notoriously short-tempered animals, said Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe and head of the group of local tribesmen who took up arms after ISIS took control of the nearby town of Hawija.

      Why are you here if you are not Christian? Why should any Christian agree with you? True Christians are incompatible with any liberals. You must repent your sin to get saved. Read John chapter 3.

        You don’t have to agree with me but it’s a little odd that you want to pine over the deaths of some ISIS militants.

    Even the animals know the human villains.

    • The false jesus of mohammed is supposed to kill the pigs and christians when he returns. The real Jesus has all power in heaven and earth, including power to command pigs.

    There was also a recent incident where lions attacked Muslims about to stone a Christian man and his friends. The lions only attacked the Muslims. Interesting, too, that this happened in a region that was reported to not have any lions.
