A social media star, called Sajad Gharibi, has signed up to fight for Iranian forces in Syria. He has been dubbed the ‘Persian Hercules’ and ‘Iranian Hulk’
Sajah Gharibi gained his nicknames after showing off his body on Instagram- he now has over 100,000 followers on Instagram. He can lift the weight of two baby Elephants with Ease!
The 24 year old Body Builder had previously been accused of being part of ISIS after an IS executioner nicknamed ‘The Bulldozer’ was compared to him as a result of their similar structures. Since the accusation, Gharabi has rejected the claim and protested against IS.
The Instagram star has now decided to actively protest against the so called Islamic State by volunteering to fight against them in Syria for Iranian forces. His reason- he wants to protect Shia Muslim shrines against attackers.
However he will be fighting for Assad’s regime, which has been known to carry out mass atrocities. So don’t go calling him a hero!
One thing we do know for sure is that it is going to take a lot to stop this tank
