‘He is still my little brother’
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.
