Hamid's parents said they were proud of their son, Mahmoud, Hamid's father, also noted that he hasn't seen that talent in any of his other 12 sons.
Mr. Ahmed, a school teacher of Arabic, Maths, basic combat training and AK47 level 2 stated that he prays Hamid keeps developing that talent and hopefully he will make his parents proud by becoming a martyr before a long time, the parents were overjoyed by the teacher's good wishes and repeated "may God hear your prayers" as the teacher wished Hamid a glorious martyrdom. Other teachers also noted that Hamid has been getting excellent grades in other courses, too notably in grenades class and basic RPG training.
