ISIS Fighter Captures Own Death On GoPro Camera (Video)

| by Jonathan Constante

An ISIS fighter captured his own death on video using a GoPro during a gunfight (video below).

The footage shows ISIS fighters firing machine guns at government troops in Western Syria, the Daily Mail reported.

Just a few seconds in, the man filming the battle collapses to his knees after being struck by a bullet. He was reportedly hit by a soldier loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.

The camera falls to the ground and the ISIS fighter lets out a cry. Another fighter is seen falling against an armored vehicle after being shot, as well.

The video was released as a way for ISIS to praise martyrs, the Sun reported. It comes shortly after reports that Syrian forces strengthened their hold on Palmyra on March 28 by retaking the ancient city after nearly 10 months of ISIS rule.

President Bashar al-Assad called the victory “fresh proof of the efficiency of the Syrian army and its allies in fighting terrorism.”
