The men are seen loading up a cannon before moving what they thought was a safe distance away from it. Moments later, the video shows an explosion and the camera hits the ground. It is unclear if it was the cannon or mortar round that malfunctioned.

Gunfire is heard after the explosion and some militants are heard quietly mourning the deaths of their comrades.

Several viewers commented on the video and mocked the Syrian rebels’ failure. One YouTuber with the user name Jimmy In Mexico, commented: “The pink mist was incredible.”
