We thought of beginning this article saying ‘Heartbreaking!’ as we’re sharing a video of a suicide bomber who burst into tears before he went on his mission. But apparently the jihadist of the Islamic State (IS) aka Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was crying not because he feared death, but because he was scared he would fail in his mission!
Or maybe that was just an excuse given by the suicide bomber, identified as Jafar al-Tayyar from Uzbekistan, who was actually scared of dying at such a young age. Who wouldn’t be? (MUST SEE: Heartbreaking images! Artists pay tribute to Syrian toddler who drowned off Turkey coast)
The video, where he is shown crying and being comforted by his brethren before embarking on his suicide mission, has gone viral. Towards the end of the video, Jafar’s tank, laden with explosives, is recorded bursting into flames. In death, he succeeds in launching a deadly attack on the Shi’ite town of Fua in Idlib Province of Syria. The jihadist is dead!
Let it be known that this video is not for the faint-hearted! And certainly not recommended for children. It also seems like a propaganda video. Watch it here.
