An incredible video has emerged showing the moment an elderly woman bravely confronted two Daesh [Islamic State] militants, telling them their terror group is cursed and that they are not back by God.

The video, which is believed to have been shot in Syria, shows the woman walks up to the fighters' car, brand them both 'devils' and tell them: 'I swear nothing you have done was in the way of God'.

Clearly shocked at being confronted, the men initially plead with the woman, telling her to explain what she means and asking if 'everything is good between us?'.

The woman chooses to ignore the men's attempts to justify Daesh's brutality, however, and instead attacks their bloodthirsty savagery and accuses them of 'killing each other like donkeys'.

The video begins with the elderly woman walking up to the militants car and berate them for being members of the barbaric terrorist organisation.

Repeatedly urging them to 'turn back to God' she tells the fighters that Daesh is cursed and that neither they nor Bashar al-Assad's Syrian regime will emerge from the bloodshed victorious.

The men initially respond to her berating them by asking her what has prompted her attack. They then try to justify their actions by telling her of their recent prayer sessions.

The woman, who wears traditional Arabian clothing, ignores the men and continues her attack, swearing at them at insisting that Daesh's brutality is 'making us go backwards'.

Becoming increasingly frustrated, the men change their tone and begin telling the woman they are busy and she should go away. They then resort to mockery when she begins reciting verses from the Quran that warn against fighting and slaughter when it is possible to make peace.

'You don't want this slaughtering, nor do you want this murder,' she says, prompting one of the militants to chillingly reply: ' We have come to you with slaughter'.

Throughout the video the woman's face twists in fury as she demands they stop killing people.

'Do not slaughter anyone and nobody will slaughter you. It's all forbidden. I swear nothing you have done was in the way of God,' she says.

'God is watching what you are doing. 'Those who deny our verses and are arrogant towards them, the gates of heaven will not be opened for them, nor will they enter paradise,' she adds.

The video then comes to an end without showing what became of the brave elderly woman.

Yesterday Jordanian air force jets bombed Daesh hideouts in Syria, state television said, resuming the intensified raids that ended at the weekend after three days.

The raids are the first the Jordanian military have announced since three straight days of aerial bombing - in retaliation for the killing of a pilot - that ended on Saturday. Mouath al-Kasaesbeh was burned to death by Islamic State militants two weeks ago.

'The airforce has bombed and destroyed select targets of the Daesh criminal gang this afternoon,' it said.
