Video of a suicide bomber's funeral has gone viral after an explosion interrupted the services. The catastrophic detonation happened in the midst of a large crowd of his supporters, killing and maiming multiple individuals in the process. The cheers of the crowd quickly changed to chants of "Allahu Akbar" as disoriented people wandered about in the devastation, searching for friends and relatives. The entire video was captured on a low resolution video and contains graphic images resulting from the devastation.
According to Live Leak, the suicide bomber was shot by Israeli forces and died from his wounds. His Muslim brothers took his body and prepared it for a funeral procession where hundreds of his supporters gathered to lay his body to rest. Unknown to the supporters, the individuals that prepared his body for the funeral forgot to remove his suicide belt. As the body was carried toward his final resting place, the belt exploded, killing multiple individuals and harming many more.
The video below shows the graphic devastation of the explosion and its aftermath. The images within are a sorrowful reminder of the devastation of suicide bomber attacks.
The validity of the video has not been completely verified at this time. However, the devastation that can be seen is very real and horrific. Mad World News reported the man's suicide belt was originally intended to detonate near non-Muslims, but the Israeli soldiers killed him before he could carry out his mission. In an attempt to give him the funeral he deserved, according to his Muslim brethren, they cheered at his sacrifice until the bomb exploded in their presence.
As the smoke cleared in the video, the devastation is clear. Mangled and deceased bodies are strewn across the ground, and many individuals are dazed from the blast. Dismembered body parts are scattered across the ground as friends and family grasp their loved ones close by. The horrible scene is accentuated by chaotic screams of "Allahu akbar" as the video recorder meanders through the chaos.
The scene shows how the devastation of suicide bombers can affect the lives of everyone across the world, not just non-Muslims. Although some reports of the event are using it as an opportunity to mock the irony of the situation, the loss of life is a real reminder of the devastation that suicide bombers cause. Many women and children were harmed, along with other innocent victims that may not have understood the impact suicide bombers have on the world.
