By BI: ‘Cub of the Caliphate,’ no older than about 10, is seen executing a Syrian Army soldier by decapitation as the terror group increasingly uses young boys to kill.
HEAVY A new video (below) purportedly released by the Islamic State shows a young boy soldier beheading a Syrian army officer in Palmyra, Syria.
UK Daily Mail Wearing camouflage and a black headdress, the boy’s face is uncovered – revealing a chilling dead-eyed stare that offers a glimpse of the evil he has witnessed carried out by ISIS’ killers.
The soldier is seen being forced to lay on his stomach as the young boy approaches him from behind, pulls his head back by the hair, and uses a small knife to slit the man’s throat and set about beheading him.
In a moment of true horror the child then lifts the victim’s severed head in a warped celebration of the brutal murder. He then places the head on the victim’s back.
Throughout the entire killing, a senior ISIS fighter is seen observing the shocking scene. At the end of the video the older militant turns to the camera and makes a chilling threat to the West.
‘Our goal is not only Palmyra or Homs or Damascus, rather our goal is to conquer Bayt al- Maqdes [Jerusalem] and Rome, God willing,’ according to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, who say they were sent a copy of the video.
Sorry, original source has taken down the beheading video.
