Soldiers returning home can make for some of the most tear-jerking videos. If you're a fan of reunions, this new heartwarming video of a Saudi soldier meeting his mother again is sure to have you reaching for that box of tissues.

In the video, the recruit — dressed in fatigues — has the broadest smile on his face, as he rushes to his mother. Just before he reaches her, he stops and performs a smart military salute, before enveloping the overjoyed mum in a bear hug.

He then breaks the embrace and drops to his knees to kiss her feet, before getting back up to hug her once again.

According to Sharjah News, which posted the video, the soldier did so upon meeting his mother for the first time after he returned home from an extended period of duty.
