Heart-eating militant gunned down by rivals

By Around the Web

(Sputnik News) Three years after video surfaced of an al-Nusra Front member eating the heart of a Syrian soldier, the militant has been killed by rival extremists.

In May of 2013, disturbing video was posted online appearing to show a man identified as Khaled al-Hamad, also known as Abu Sakkar, cutting out the heart of a dead Syrian soldier and biting into it.

“I swear to God we will eat your hearts out, you soldiers of Bashar. You dogs. God is greater!” he said, before biting the organ. “Heroes of Baba Amr…we will take out their hearts to eat them.”

A commander with the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front, Sakkar was gunned down in a skirmish with rival extremists, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
