A reportedly recent video out of Syria shows an alleged Syrian soldier taking a selfie video with his phone and accidentally recording a deadly blast.
According to reports, the blast killed two soldiers in the targeted vehicle and seriously wounded a third. The event took place in Der Ezzor countryside, which means the device was likely planted by the Islamic State. The source also indicates that the IED was probably planted a “long while ago,” which indicate that it was triggered by a pressure plant, rather than command detonated by a nearby triggerman.
