“ Heroes emerge from the womb of virtue, sacrifice and honour, through the honour of servitude and submission to Allah, the Almighty King, only to Him and to no others but Him. They lead armies of Islam into the battlefields, they fought battles beyond imagination and illustrated supreme examples in sacrifice and bravery….. an example from this age….Khattab.” –Extract from the documentary
Khattab, whose real name was Samir Saleh Abdullah al-Suwailem, was born in Arar, Saudi Arabia, in 1969 and was described as a brilliant student who would regularly score high percentage pass rates in school examinations.
At the tender age of 17, Khattab left Saudi Arabia to participate in the fight against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. It was to be his first experience in war and the start of an illustrious military career that would span 14 years.
After the war ended against the Russians, Khattab refused to come home to his family, instead choosing to move on to another war zone. During the next 14 years, he subsequently only visited his family on two occasions, the last of them being 1993. This was after he was gravely wounded four times and was the lone survivor when a truck exploded.
From 1995, till his assassination, Khattab fought in Chechnya. He was to become the commander-in-chief of the foreign fighters who were now inflicting heavy losses on the occupying Russian Army.
