A collection of combat vehicles fashioned by Daesh from ordinary cars has been seized by Iraqi police and put on exhibit, before they are finally destroyed.

Iraqi police have seized combat vehicles used by Daesh terrorists during their occupation of Mosul, which was finally liberated from the terrorist group earlier this month. 

The police have created an exhibition of the vehicles, which observers said appear reminiscent of automobiles from the movie Mad Max.
