ISIS Sinks To New Low: Detonates Booby Trapped Baby In Exercise

Islamic State

Stories about horrific atrocities committed by the Islamic State and other Jihadist groups keep coming out of the Middle East.

Iraqi News reported on Sunday that the head of the security committee in Diyala’s provincial council, Sadiq al-Husseini, had said that Islamic State booby-trapped and ignited a baby by remote control near Sharqat in Anbar Province in Iraq.

“The available information indicates that ISIS brought a baby, the son of a civilian was executed a few weeks ago under the charges of killing ISIS militants, in one of the training camps near Sharqat northern Salahuddin,” al-Husseini told Iraqi News. “The organization has booby-trapped and blew up the child in front of dozens of ISIS militants by a remote,” he added.

The detonating of the baby was part of a training program to learn about booby-trapping mechanisms.

In the town of Heet, 31 miles from Ramadi–the city that was captured by ISIS in May–the organization burnt five women alive recently. The women refused to give their children to the Jihadist organization and were torched together with their sons by ISIS, a local Sunni tribal leader reported.

Burning victims alive, like the Jordanian pilot in January, has become common practice in the Islamic State and is rooted in verses taken from the Hadith (Bukhari 11:626).

The mothers in Heet apparently wanted to prevent their children from being turned into ’martyrs’ by Islamic State.

Thousands of children have been recruited by ISIS since the group established the caliphate in Syria and Iraq. They are brainwashed to believe that it is their holy duty to execute suicide missions or to take part in mass executions.

Just last week, Islamic State sent a 14-year old boy on a suicide mission. The child, Mar Hadid Al-Muhammadidrove a truck filled with explosives into a Kurdish checkpoint near the city of Hasakah in Syria. Fifty Kurdish fighters were killed in the explosion. ISIS posted pictures of the boy on social media that were taken moments before he went on his suicide mission.

ISIS also used children to execute Syrian government soldiers in the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra at the beginning of July. In a video published by Islamic State after the massacre, children are shown with their victims moments before the executions in the Roman amphitheatre in Palmyra.

The soldiers are lined up on their knees on the stage of the theatre, and behind each soldier stands a child executioner with a handgun. Many of them appear to be just 12 or 13 years old. A crowd of ISIS terrorists and male citizens of Palmyra is watching as they wait for the massacre. An ISIS leader gives a speech in front of a giant ISIS flag, after which the children shoot the soldiers in the head.

Islamic State has used the famous Roman amphitheater for executions ever since it seized Palmyra, but this marked the first time children were used to carry out the executions.

ISIS kidnapped 500 children in July alone. The Daily Star in England reportedthat ISIS is training the children in special camps dubbed “The cubs of the Caliphate,” where it prepares them to become martyrs. Security experts fear that Islamic State is training them to become suicide bombers and that they will be used in a wave of attacks on Western targets and tourist sites in Arab countries. The experts warn that the children probably will be drugged before embarking on their suicide missions.

It is estimated that ISIS recruiting sergeants are signing up around 300 children a month to join in weapons training and bomb-making at their Osama bin Laden camp near Raqqa.

Families desperate for food are prepared to “sell” their children to the terror group, said Prof Aymenn Jawad Al-Tamimi, of Israel’s Herzliya University.

ISIS provide the children with clothing, housing and meals in exchange for their allegiance on the battlefield.

Among these and other shocking stories about children in Iraq and Syria stands out a report by Christian Today.

On Sunday, this English media organization published a remarkable story of the 11-year old Christian Iraqi girl, Maryam Behnam, who fled with her family from ISIS-held territory in Iraq.

She told a CBN reporter that “despite all the transgressions committed by ISIS, including the brutal killing and abduction of thousands of people, she has forgiven the Jihadists.”

Marayam, who is now living in a small Christian community in the city of Erbil in Kurdistan, told CBN that she won’t do anything to ISIS members–“I will only ask God to forgive them.”

“In the Bible Jesus said to us: ‘Don’t be afraid, I am with you.’ And also, he said forgive others no matter (how much) they are hating you. You have to forgive them,” the girl said.

When she grows up, she wants to join Doctors Without Borders, according to Christian Today.
