About 50 boys aged from 7 to 13 years old are currently training in the terrorist-preparing camp, the name of which is translated as “The most precious children”.
The trainers of this base call their students “gold take” because such children are disinterested and could be easily manipulated, while older children want to receive money for their work.
The trainers believe that the use of teenagers allows strengthening the position of a so-called “Islamic state”. Making the boys the diehard warriors, they use their religious beliefs and derive maximum benefit from terrorism.
It is much easier to convince the children from impoverished Syrian families, who could agree to execute any order up to suicide bombing.
Training time in the camp is 25 days. Students are divided into groups of 13 people. The most important subjects in such a school are the “basis of jihad” and the “skilful possession of modern firearms”. After finishing the training course, the teenagers enter the terrorist groups.
According to the eyewitnesses, there are lesser and lesser girls and unmarried women in the region day by day. Their parents send them to their relatives out of town as the organizers of this camp have plans to create similar terrorist groups concerning young women, living in the neighborhood.
The International Criminal Court considers the recruitment of children under the age of 15 years in quasi-military structures or their participation in acts of war as military offence.
A special article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights prohibits mobilization of adolescents under the age of 18 years and their involvement in armed hostilities.
