“The ISIL has started recruiting 10 to 17-year-old children and is using them for suicide attacks against the security forces in Nineveh and is now using the same kids for firing squads,” the security sources told al-Soumeriya news website on Wednesday.
“After the ISIL decreased the salaries of its members, many of them have defected or are refusing to fight and therefore, the ISIL has been forced to use children,” the source added.
“The ISIL has now chosen a German child as the commander of its execution brigades,” he said.
A shocking new video released by the ISIL terrorist group earlier this month showed a British boy executing a prisoner with a handgun in Syria.
The blue-eyed white boy, identified in the video as Abu Abdullah al-Britani, was one of five children carrying out executions of Kurds in the city of Raqqa.
The boys, believed to be from Britain, Egypt, Turkey, Tunisia and Uzbekistan, made statements in Arabic before raising their handguns and executing the kneeling men in front of them.
The child executioners, believed to be about 10 to 13 years old, were clad in camouflage gear and black gloves and their faces were clearly on display.
One of the boys reportedly shouted in Arabic, “No one can save the Kurds even with the support of America, France, Britain, Germany, the devils in hell.”
They then placed handguns to the backs of the prisoners’ heads and pulled the trigger.
