He's not an Isis fighter. He appears Latino and is wearing woodland camo.
Their 'explosives expert' is an imbecile. A simple look at the impact angle tells anyone who's ever fired a mortar knows exactly what happened. Mortars go up, then come down...in a nice smooth arc. For that to have been IF, he'd have to have been laying down. Realistically, what happened is that he was kneeling/leaning over the barrel to feed it and managed to not get out of the way fast/far enough.

Yup. Mortars aren't toys.

His shoulder tab says "Quimbaya" - which is a town in South America.
He's probably not regular army. With a town designator on his uniform, he is likely in their equivalent of national guard. This may also explain his inadequate training.

Given the size of the shell and the pointy nose, I am guessing it is an American made 60mm round with an M525 fuze.

That's just a guess. I suppose it could be an 81mm, or a 120mm.
