‘He is still my lit­tle brother’

New Straits Times - - News -

MELAKA: “He may be a mur­derer, but he is still my lit­tle brother.”

Those were the words of Nur Dianna Mo­hamed Jedi, 28, the sis­ter of dead Malaysian Is­lamic State (IS) op­er­a­tive Muham­mad Wan­ndy Mo­hamed Jedi, who was killed in a drone at­tack in Syria on April 29.

Fight­ing hard to hold back her tears, Dianna de­scribed her younger brother as a self­less per­son who would sac­ri­fice him­self to sup­port the fam­ily.

“I can’t de­scribe how I feel. It is crazy not to (feel) sad (when he is) my own brother.

“No mat­ter how far we are from each other, we are still sib­lings be­cause blood is thicker than wa­ter.

“This is a fact that can­not be changed,” said Dianna, the sec­ond of four sib­lings at Kam­pung Bukit Baru Dalam here yes­ter­day.

On Mon­day, po­lice con­firmed that the top Malaysian IS leader was killed in Raqqa, Syria, on April 29.

His wife, Nor Mah­mu­dah Ah­mad, 28, who is in Syria, posted about his death on Face­book the same day he died.

Dianna said the four sib­lings grew up to­gether be­fore they started liv­ing separately when their mother died in 2013.
