A group of Syrian rebels unsuccessfully escaped death after trying to snap a selfie with a phone bomb detonator which blew up in their faces.
This is the shocking moment a Syrian rebel blows himself and his fellow freedom fighters up by taking a selfie with a phone connected to a bomb.
The footage, which has not been verified, shows members of the Free Syrian Army gathering around a camera, Dailymail reports.
In the video, the eight men could be seen sitting in front of a rebel flag as they sing into a microphone, with two rifles propped up in front of them. As one picks up a phone to take a selfie with the others, a clicking noise can be heard moments before a sudden blast rocks the room, with flames and smoke obscuring the camera’s view.
The rebel group is also fighting against forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad following the uprising in the nation in 2011, which has led to vast bloodshed and a refugee crisis.
