Saudi youngster blows himself up in Syria
Fahad Al-Hajiri, a Saudi high school student, was involved in a suicide attack at the beginning of this month after IS chose him and three others to carry out an operation inside an oilfield in Homs.
Al-Hajiri, nicknamed Abu Azzam Al-Sharqi, lived in Dammam, where he went to school, but he left his studies to fly to Syria and join IS.
Prior to his departure, Al-Hajiri tried to communicate with members of IS in Syria via Internet, to arrange his stay there. He participated in a number of battles after he finished his intensive training, or what IS calls Shariah training.
Abu Abdulrahman Al-Mutairi, a man who fought with him for IS and has since returned, said they were told that they would “carry out the operation in Al-Shaer oilfield in rural Homs.”
