Another One Bites the Dust
A British man, who was a supervisor at a British clothing chain, has reportedly been killed in Syria while fighting for the rebel insurgent group, the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS).
Muhammad Hamidur Rahman, 25, from Portsmouth, was shot dead during gunfire a fortnight ago, according to his father, Abdul Hannan.
Hannan told the Daily Mail he was notified of his son’s death by text message, which was likely sent by other foreign fighters serving with the Islamic State reports RT News.
Recalling the last telephone call with his son, Mr Hannan told the Mail:“He asked us to pray for him, and said he wanted to become a shaheed (martyr) for the sake of Allah."
While it is unknown where Rahman was killed, the reports suggest he is the second known Briton to have died while fighting in Syria.
Rahman is one of hundreds of Britons thought to have joined the IS, a group that has become notorious for acts of extreme violence and depravity, including instances of public flogging and beheadings. It is thought that nine other Britons from Portsmouth joined him in the region.
According to the daily, Rahman flew to Turkey in October, before crossing the border to Syria. He informed his parents just days later that he had joined an aid convoy in the region.
