    Looks like he picked up some of that " Double Charge Salted Ammo" that is purposely left behind by whatever army is forced out of the area.

    Allah akbar!

    Maybe God didn't like his name being taken in vain like that?

    Or maybe it fired out of battery?

    Who knows.

    Here's hoping it put him out of action for a while.

    At the very least, it is one less rifle in the hands of a terrorist.

    I've noticed that when they "fight" (and God perhaps bless them) they are sure mouthy/screamy.
    I've only been halfway around the block but that's not real smart if you want to kill/survive.. indeed, back in the old American Indian days, a mother would probably permanently silence a loud child.. out of necessity and without fail.
    pretty odd

    Do they really do this? If so, that is great. We need more of these guns to blow up in the enemies hands.

    Here's a recent article written on it.

    Syria Booby-Traps Rebels' Ammo
    New York Times reports on 'dirty trick' of war

    (Newser) – Syria has resorted to what the New York Times calls "one of the dirty tricks of the modern battlefield"—booby-trapping ammunition used by rebels. As war correspondent CJ Chivers explains, the government puts the sabotaged ammo on the black markets where the rebels get their weaponry. It's not exactly a precision tactic, but it works. Chivers talks to one injured fighter who tried to fire his rifle at government forces, only to have it explode in his hands and seriously injure him.

    Before piling on Bashar al-Assad, know that the US does the same thing against the Taliban in Afghanistan, and it also employed the tactic in Iraq, says the Times. In fact, it's possible that Syria got some of its booby-traps from the latter country. The practice even goes back to World War II, though it's rarely well-known. “The problem with them is the same as with land mines,” says one arms expert. “You can’t be sure who is going to pick up and try to use the spiked ammunition.”
