IS video shows children killing Syrian government supporters

Damascus, Dec 4 (IANS) The Islamic State (IS) released a new video where children, recruited by jihadis, were seen killing six alleged supporters of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s regime, the media reported on Friday.

The unverified video was titled “To the children of the Jews”. It showed five children shooting to death five men and a sixth boy beheading a victim, EFE news reported.

The over 14 minutes long footage begins with images of a training session in the middle of a desert, of the “cubs of the caliphate”, as the IS calls children and teenagers recruited into the terror group.

A trainer said five of the children have won a competition “to establish the limits of God to the apostates who are trapped in the annulment of Islam” and predicts the Caliphate ambitious cubs will free Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia and “raise the banner of the Prophet over the White House in America and in the heart of Tel Aviv.”

The video has been released by the information office of the jihadis in the Al Jair province.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), said the place where the murders took place is the citadel of Rahba in Mayadin village, the main bastion of the IS in the east of Deir ez-Zor.

According to data published by SOHR in July, IS has recruited more than 1,100 children in Syrian territory since the beginning of this year.
