French Jihadist "Nicolas Bons" has died fighting in Syria barely four months after his half-brother met the same fate.
The mother of 30-year-old Nicolas was informed by text message from the front line that her son had been killed on Dec. 22 in a suicide truck bombing in the province of Homs, the father "Gerard Bons" told AFP by phone Monday from his home in French Guiana.
Bons said his ex-wife Dominique had received a text message Thursday that said: "your son Nicolas carried out a truck bombing at an enemy village in the Homs region. May God accept him as a martyr".
French intelligence sources said that about 220 French are fighting in Syria. At least 18 had been killed prior to the death of Nicolas Bons.
