Watch: ISIS father’s last words to his girls before they blow themselves up
According to Syrian news agency SANA, the girl blew herself up at a police station in the capital Damascus
A Syrian father forced his almost 10-year-old girl to carry out a suicide attack earlier this month.
According to Syrian news agency SANA, the girl blew herself up at a police station in the capital Damascus. In the immediate aftermath it was not clear who carried out the attack.
More recently, however, a video posted on social media showed a man speaking to two young girls, presumed to be his children, about an attack they intended to carry – the same attack which took place at the police station around 10 days ago.
The father is known as “Abu Nimr,” is believed to be a former member of militant group al-Nusra Front and is from Ghouta.
Syrian activists familiar with Abu Nimr were able to verify the authenticity of the video.
10-year-old Fatimah who strives to become a suicide bomber writes her own will where she asks of her father, mother, sisters, and husband to also follow her footsetps and carry on with suicide bombing attacks.
