It’s almost like a suicide bombing – but without the promise of 72 virgins.
A RUSSIAN special forces commando on a Rambo-style solo mission in Syria died a “hero” after calling in an air strike on himself to wipe out a group of ISIS terrorists.
The fearless soldier was surrounded by jihadis while on a secret deployment directing aerial bombardment on targets near the ancient city of Palmrya.
Facing certain death he radioed Russian jets ordering them to attack his own position and died in the blast along with a number of ISIS fanatics.

He was later revealed to be 25 year old Alexander Prokhorenko.
He’s expected to be posthumously awarded the Hero of Russia Award, their highest honor.
