A video has recently surfaced online that shows eight Syrian rebels, who are reportedly members of the Free Syrian Army, accidentally triggering a bomb while taking a selfie.
The men are seen gathered around a few propped up rifles while recording what looks to be a propaganda video which terrorist organizations are famous for posting on the internet.
When one of the men to the left holds a cellphone in the air to take a selfie, it appears that the phone is rigged to an improvised explosive device (IED) in the room causing an explosion, according to Funker530, the website which originally uploaded the video.
The camera falls to the floor following the blast, and flames and smoke fill the room. Some men in the video can be seen jumping over the equipment in an attempt to escape. A few men can also be heard shouting “Allahu Akbar” as they run from the scene.
