(NSFW) Nusra Front Fighter Films His Own Death (Arabic Language Test)

A several-years-old body-worn camera video from the Syrian War shows rebels, possibly members of al Qaeda's Nusra Front, assaulting government positions before the cameraman is hit by at least two rifle rounds. This video is being re-uploaded to test the Arabic auto-captioning feature of our new video player. If you would like to help us with the test, hit the settings wheel, select captions, and then hit English. This should cause the Arabic in the video to be auto-translated by an AI.


During the entirety of the video, incoming small arms fire can be heard snapping through the air around the assaulting combatants. It's unclear if they are unable to recognize the threat or are just extremely accustomed to it, as they do not seem to be bothered by it. They leisurely stroll from one position to the next, occasionally using cover.


Just before the video ends, they approach a regime-held building. One of the rebels can be seen throwing grenades on top of the structure. The cameraman appears to mistakenly think the battle is all but over as he stands in the open, fully visible to the enemy-occupied position. Suddenly he is struck by a rifle round and he drops to the ground. A followup shot can be heard striking him shortly after. His time has run out.
