air force pilot Nasser (left) and ISIS suicide bomber Zaher al-Harthi

The brothers who died on OPPOSITE sides of war in Middle East

One died a national hero fighting terrorism. The other was a terrorist who died killing heroes.

Both were brothers. Both were killed on the same day – and both leave pregnant wives.

Saudi air force pilot Nasser al-Harthi was killed last week when his Apache helicopter crashed while conducting air strikes for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.

    Hell of a coincidence, eh?

    ‘Their extraordinary fate illustrates the deep divisions not just among Muslims in the conservative Islamic Kingdom, but across the Middle East. ‘

    ‘fate’ …. lol

    The one brother made the decision to join a terrorist group, and later decided to become a suicide bomber.

    The word ‘fate’ should be reserved for those poor people who get run over by a bus or get killed by a falling tree, etc.

    • It’s a funny old world.

    • How could they be from the same family?

        Pure coincidence.

        They died in two separate wars, however many hundreds of miles apart.

        It’s not like the shockwave from the suicide bombing knocked the helicopter out of the sky.

        That’d be something!

    Civil war is always the bitterest war of all.

    Not seeing a downside…

    The writer of the DM article doesn’t have a clue about what is happening in the middle east. They did not die on “opposite sides of a mid-east war” . They died on the same side just by different methods.

    The brother who was a pilot died while trying to kill Shia Muslims in Yemen. The brother who joined ISIS died trying to blow-up Iraqi troops who were most likely Shia forces.

    Saudi Arabia has funded ISIS so I don’t see how these two brother’s were on “opposite sides” of a war. It seems to me that were on the same side just fighting on two different fronts.

    They look more like cousins to me, maybe uncle and nephew, hang on, father and son? No wait, all of the above.
