Video captures reluctant, scared teen suicide bomber sobbing before driving explosives into village

A video showing the final moments of a reluctant teenage suicide bomber weeping before his deadly mission has come to light and the pictures could make the intended jihadist propaganda footage backfire — badly.

The terrorist is terrified.

The teen, identified by The Times of London as Jafar al-Tayyar, is seen crying as he prepares to drive into a Syrian village and detonate his armored vehicle and himself in a jihad mission for the Imam Bukhari Jamaat militant group.

As the video begins al-Tayyar is seen being congratulated by his fellow jihadists with hugs and pats on the back.

But al-Tayyar doesn’t seem too excited about his impending death. As the reality of the situation begins to set in the teenager is seen openly weeping in his vehicle.

Off camera, another jihadist attempts to comfort al-Tayyar saying, “Jafar, my brother, don’t be afraid. When you are scared, remember Allah.”

To which al-Tayyar responds, “I’m just scared I won’t succeed.”

But succeed he did, as the footage shows him driving to his target and detonating himself and vehicle.

The explosion was one part of a much wider attack perpetrated by the al-Nusra Front that included over 200 rockets and seven suicide bombings.

The group released the video to glorify al-Tayyar as a martyr.
