Video footage emerged which caught a Syrian teen crying before he blew himself up on a Syrian village.
Despite his apparent fear of dying, Uzbek national Jafar al-Tayyar is told to drive an armoured vehicle packed with explosives into the villages of Fua and Kafriyeh.
After Tayyar drove off, the vehicle with him inside blows up moments later, spraying rubbles of the teen body everywhere.
These Syrian suicide bomber are perceived to usually embrace death confidently. As for this teenager, he was far from embracing his impending jihadi death, the teenager appears terrified – openly crying as he sits in the armoured vehicle.
Off camera another militant can be heard trying to reassure him by saying: ‘Jafar, my brother, don’t be afraid. When you are scared, remember Allah.’
Tayyar responds by saying: ‘I’m just scared I won’t succeed’.
This is the image of the aftermath after the teenager went through with his suicide mission.
The video begins by showing Tayyar being embraced by several other militants loyal to the Imam Bukhari Jamaat militant group.
Unable to grow a beard, the teenager appears far younger than his fellow jihadis, who smile and pat him on the back as he prepares for his mission.
The teen Jihadi raises his right index finger in the air as a gesture mostly used by Jihads, which signifies, ‘Allah is the highest’.
At this point Tayyar’s facial expression changes as the reality of what he is about to do sunk in.
Looking at the scenery around him, the militant appears to realise he is just moments from death and bursts into tears, sobbing as his fellow militants do their best to reassure him and insist he carry out the attack.
The video captured is as below:
Tayyar’s suicide mission was part of a wider attack last Friday, during which more than 200 rockets and seven separate suicide bombs driven against the defences of Fua, according to The Times.
The main force behind the assault were Al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate Nusra Front, who are also known by the name Jabhat al-Nusra.
