Video: Kurdish-led forces capture ISIS child soldiers near Raqqa
Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which compromises mostly of the Kurdish YPG, have captured three ISIS child soldiers in a town in Raqqa’s western countrysides.
According to an SDF spokesman in the video, the children will be investigated before they are returned to their families to resume a normal life as it was before the ISIS invasion.
In the video, the SDF soldiers call out to the children to strip their upper clothing to ensure they are not carrying suicide vests, in which the children respond they have nothing, as all weapons were inside the house.
They then emphasize that they are brothers with the SDF.
As ISIS has mostly been retracting in the Aleppo, Raqqa and Nineveh countrysides, they have increasingly been relying on child soldiers to stregnthen their fighting forces.
