A jihadist suicide bomber was filmed being comforted by his fellow militants and breaking down in tears in his final moments before his fatal attack.

The Uzbekistan fighter, named Jafar al-Tayyar, is shown in the video receiving hugs and well wishes from his fellow fighters, reports.

One of the others tells him: "Jafar, my brother, don't be afraid. When you are scared, remember Allah."

"I'm just scared I won't succeed," he tells his fellow jihadis. 

When Tayyar climbs into the armored vehicle packed with explosives, he breaks down in tears. 

The terrified young man, who appears to be in his early 20s, then closes the door and the camera follows the vehicle as it heads towards its target.

At the end of the video, Tayyar drives into the distance and an explosion shakes the camera while a large mushroom cloud appears.

Radio Liberty reports that Jafar al-Tayyar fought for the Imam Bukhari Jamaat, an Uzbek group fighting alongside the Al-Nusra Front, which has links to Al-Qaeda.
