Rescue teams drove through the area before finding al-Ajaleen a few meters away from his car, local media said. 

Video footage showing the team coming across the body and his car has gone viral on social media.

The vehicle that was found at the site was full of sticks which means he could have been collecting wood for his family.

Footage shows several men approaching the body as the wind whips across the expanse of land.  

He was found in the ‘sujood’ or prostration praying position which prompted hundreds of social media users to pray for him online.
