The Islamic State’s latest propaganda video features young children slaughtering prisoners with knives and guns.
The video was filmed in one of ISIS’s Syrian provinces, and is titled, “He Made Me Alive With His Blood.”
The Clarion Project notes the video says the young children have been “pulled away from their games” and sent to “do jihad.” The executions are all carried out at an abandoned amusement park, presumably under ISIS control.
ISIS often features young children in brutal execution videos. The terrorist organization calls these child soldiers “lion cubs of the caliphate.” These child soldiers are frequently used in major battles by ISIS, which retain a tactical advantage in their incessant use of suicide bombers.
Nearly 300 ISIS child soldiers were killed in the first weeks of the U.S.-backed Iraqi Security Force’s push on the city of Mosul. The U.S. estimate and Syrian Observatory Human Rights report indicate nearly one-third of ISIS fighters killed in the operation are child soldiers.
