A new, very disturbing video which showed young children being trained as the next generation of terrorists was yesterday released by the Islamic State (ISIS). And according to the Daily Mail, some of the boys in the video appear to be as young as 5 years old. They are seen answering religious questions and quoting the Quran.
The video was shot at Al Farouk training camp for “cubs,” in Raqqa, Syria, where ISIS claims its capital. Lasts nine minutes and is in Arabic.
The video claims the 80 children featured are the children of foreign fighters who have joined ISIS. An instructor says the most of the children are in the second phase of training and that they represent
the next generation of ISIS.
Rows of camouflage-clad young boys can be seen in formation following the instructions of an adult. They are wearing black headbands associated with ISIS.
At one point they kneel in prayer as the instruction kneels with two rifles standing in front of him. NBC adds that recruits under 15 are being trained to use AK-47s and are given dolls to teach them how to behead people.
“Then they make them watch a beheading, and sometimes they force them to carry the heads in order to cast the fear away from their hearts,” an Iraqi security official told NBC.
Syria Deeply reported in September that many people have fled Raqqa because of forced conscriptions, including the youth training camps.
One father told the website his life was threatened when he opposed his 13-year-old son attending one of the camps. The boy returned home with a blue-eyed, blond doll in an orange jumpsuit. He also had been given a knife and told his homework was to practice beheading.
