At least 110,000 people have died in Syria’s civil war. Here, as anywhere, fighters are glorified in death. Abdulqader Saleh was the commander of the Al Tawhid Brigade, which led the rebel victory in Aleppo. A businessman who spent his life savings arming his men, Saleh was an icon for the Free Syrian Army. After he was wounded in an airstrike on Aleppo, supporters transported him to Turkey. Saleh died in a hospital days before I arrived in Tripoli; his martyrdom photo was posted to Twitter.
These images are framed like Instagram selfies, but corpses have no selves — the dead exist as projections by the living. See how beautiful they are, these photos say. Be righteous like them.
