A video showing men in military uniform taking a live video of a missile bombing has gone viral on social media.
While we cannot ascertain the date and time this occurred, the timing of the video going round on social media suggests that it has something to do with the recent missile bombings between Iran and the United States of America (USA).
Tensions arose between USA and Iran after President Donald Trump ordered an airstrike which killed General Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s elite Quds military force.
Since then, it has been reported by various news media of rockets or missiles being fired by the Iranians at Iraqi camps where American troops are based and as well missiles being at the Iranians by the Americans.
The video which has gone viral, at the time of publication has over 58,000 views, 25,000 likes and 15,000 retweets.
In the video, men who are wearing military uniforms and armed with machine guns are seen in a moving truck somewhere in a remote area.
While one of the men was taking a selfie video of themselves, a missile flew in from behind him and blew away the truck that was closely following them.
The twitter user who shared the video captioned it that “Niggaz live stream the war.”
And many social media users believe that they it was through the live stream that made it possible for them to be tracked and for their truck to get hit by the missile.
One commentator said for example that: “Now he knows live-streaming wasn’t a good idea, just like the Intel guy told them that US drones will pick cell phone signal and separate mind from body, spirit from soul. He knows it’s his fault already.”
