Bergen American Al Qaeda Suicide Bomber Syria

July 31, 2014 by staff 

Bergen American Al Qaeda Suicide Bomber Syria, Seconds before he detonated the massive truck bomb that killed him and a number of Syrian soldiers two months ago, Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha radioed other fighters in al Qaeda to say, “I see paradise and I can smell paradise.”
That in itself may not be unusual. But what should focus our attention is the identity of the bomber — he was an American.

The son of a Palestinian father and an Italian-American mother, Abu-Salha grew up in Vero Beach, Florida, where he played high school football.

Abu-Salha, who was 22, is the first American suicide bomber known to have died in Syria.

On Monday, an al Qaeda-affiliated group in Syria released a half-hour videotape in which Abu-Salha explained his rationale for the impending suicide mission.
