An ISIS fighter's death by gunfire was caught on his own helmet camera (video below).

In the video of the incident, the militant's helmet camera captures the end of his gun firing at opponents, who can be seen next to a building. A gunfight erupts, with both sides firing at the other.

The fighter begins to move to an area where he can have better aim, but is quickly struck by a bullet. The camera captures the moment he's shot in the head and falls to the ground.

The militant lies dead on the ground, with the camera capturing a small part of his outfit in the frame.

The camera captured one of many intense moments in the fight to eradicate the terrorist group. Recently, the organization's territory has diminished following attacks by the Iraqi government as well as Kurdish forces, reports Daily Mail.

In another video that went viral in late 2015, an ISIS fighter was seen crying in fear as Kurdish forces took him away after capture.

Many militants who've been captured have expressed fear regarding retaliation at the hands of ISIS for not completing a "task," the New York Daily News reported.

Another ISIS fighter, Salah Abdeslam, also feared retaliation from the terrorist group after he survived the November attacks in Paris, France, that killed more than 127 people.

According to a friend, Abdeslam was supposed to "complete the task" by blowing himself up like his fellow attackers, reported New York Daily News. Instead, he fled the scene and became a fugitive. His friend revealed he expressed regret for the attack.

"He told me he had gone too far. He was overwhelmed by what was happening," the friend said.

Following the attacks in Paris, French President Francois Hollande vowed to strike back against those responsible.

"To all those who have seen these awful things, I want to say we are going to lead a war which will be pitiless," he said, reported New York Daily News. “Because when terrorists are capable of committing such atrocities they must be certain that they are facing a determined France, a united France, a France that is together and does not let itself be moved, even if today we express infinite sorrow.”
