- A man believed to be an ISIS member was filmed mistakenly blowing himself up
- He was attempting to launch a rocket-propelled grenade
- This video may have been taken during a training exercise
Although the details of the origin of these videos are unclear, it has been widely circulated through the media and social media, especially in the US, labeling the man in the video as an ISIS member.
He crouches on the floor next to a weapon in prayer, then up stands in the empty, mud-walled room holding a rocked-propelled grenade gun.
He appears to be aiming at a window. Just in the doorway is from where the video was filmed.
The man spends some time aiming before he attempts to shoot, blowing himself up. It is not clear whether anyone else was injured in the blast.
