Following is an excerpt from a clip depicting a Syrian child digging his own grave, part of the Syrian propaganda war. The clip was posted on the Internet on November 18, 2012.

Youth: Prayers upon our Prophet Muhammad. The children of freedom desire martyrdom for the sake of Allah.

Assalam Alykum, brother.

Child: Alykum Assalam.

Youth: I see that you are digging something. What are you digging there?

Child: I'm digging my own grave. Allah willing, I will become a martyr.

Youth: Are you asking Allah to grant you martyrdom?

Child: Allah willing.

Youth: May Allah grant you success. Take care.

This is the Al-Nukhba media crew from Deir Al-Zour. November 18, 2012.

That was a problem the Iranians were having with their volunteer suicide children walking ahead of the soldiers to detonate Saadam Hussein's mines.
Proud relatives were only getting back a finger of a hand or other body parts and wanted more to bury, so the Iranians solved the problem.

“Before entering the minefields, the children [now] wrap themselves in blankets and they roll on the ground, so that their body parts stay together after the explosion of the mines and one can carry them to the graves.”
