Jihadi dad who turned his young daughter into a suicide bomber, and blew her up in a Damascus police station is killed.
A jihadi father who used his seven-year-old daughter as a suicide bomber in Syria has now met his own
Abu Nimr al-Suri was shown on a video kissing his daughter goodbye before sending her into a syrian police station, where she was blown up by a remote detonator.
Russia Today’s Middle East correspondent Lizzie Phelan has tweeted a photograph of Abu Nimr in his traditional death shroud.
She said he had also been involved in the murder of Syrian TV actor Mohamad Rafea, 30, who was kidnapped and killed in 2012.
Many Islamist extremist fighters believe the Koran promises ‘martyrs’ 72 virgins in heaven if they die during a jihad, or holy war. Islamic scholars say this is a misreading of one of the shuras in the Koran.
Earlier this month a appalling video emerged showing the ranting extremist holding the girls in his arms as he brainwashes them.
Footage showed him lecturing her and her nine-year-old daughter about how to carry out suicide bomb attacks before they are embraced by a woman in a burka, believed to be their mother.
A short time later the seven-year-old walked into a police station in Syria’s capital, Damascus, before being killed in an explosion.
Yesterday gunmen opened fire on Abu Nimr, whose real name was Abdul Rahman Shaddad, in the Teshreen neighbourhood on the outskirts of capital Damascus.
As music played in the background, Abu Nimr, sitting in front of a black and white jihadist flag, drums into the girls the importance of completing their mission.
Both girls then said ‘Allahu Akbar’ before separate footage showed them dressed in coats and woolly hats as they embraced their mother and left the room.
A short time later, on December 16, the seven-year-old girl calmly walked into a Damascus police station before being killed in a bomb blast that also injured three officers.
In one video, the mother repeatedly hugs the seven-year-old, named as Islam, and the older girl, named as Fatima.
A man behind the camera asks the woman why she is sending her daughters to jihad when they are so young.
She replied: ‘No-one is young when it comes to jihad as every Muslim is supposed to participate in jihad.’
He then prays for Allah to accept the sacrifice the woman is making
In the second video Abu Nimr asks one of the girls what she is ‘going to do today’ before she replies that she is going to carry out a suicide bombing in Damascus.
In an apparent reference to the recent bus evacuation of rebel fighters and residents from Aleppo, Abu Nimr asks one of the children: ‘Shouldn’t you leave fighting to the men? Or did all of them flee in the green buses?’
He later added: ‘You are not going to be afraid because you are going to the Heavens, right?’.
The girl on the left replied simply: ‘Yes’.
Both children then said Allah Akbar on their father’s request before he started saying prayers.
