‘There is greatness of a martyr’

The only surviving brother of three British fighters who joined the revolution in Syria says he hopes his dead siblings have attained martyrdom and are in paradise.

Amer Deghayes, 22, is the oldest of three brothers from Brighton who fought for the al-Qaeda linked group Jabhat Al Nusra.

Amer left his hometown in 2013 and was joined by Abdullah, 18, and Jaffar, 17, the following year.

But both were killed just a few months after their arrival – Abdullah by a sniper in Lakatia in April 2014 while Jaffar died fighting six months later.

Absolutely delusional.
