Turkish Military Truck Blown Up After Failed Check for IEDs

Video from the Şemdinli area in Turkey shows a Turkish military truck going up a mountain pass and stopping on suspicion that the road had been undermined with IEDs by Kurdish militants. A soldier proceeds to check the road for IEDs, but finds none and determines it’s safe for the truck to proceed.

The truck proceeds and gets blown up. The blast is close enough to the failed IED checker to possibly kill, or at least seriously wound him too.
