ISIS’s New 10 Year-Old Executioner

London- ISIS in Syria, on Feb.4, broadcasted a video showing a dark-skinned 10 year-old child butchering a hostage the terrorist organization had captured.

In the video, the child appeared to communicate with the English language, and has directed a threat to the U.S., before cutting off the head of the hostage dressed in orange.

The seventeen-minute video began with the scene of a child dragging a man dressed in orange, then concluded with the hostage forced to his knees. Even though the child appears to speak English, it is still not clear whether he’s British or not.

The heinous video came to an end with the child “the youngest killer” taking a deep breath before pushing the hostage towards the ground and cutting off his head.

It is believed that the child is the son of the ISIS terrorist called Abu Darda, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Aleppo. The hostage is believed to be a member of the “al-Shaam’s front rebels” (Mutamaridi Jabhat al-Shaam), which is a coalition of several groups fighting extremists together.

It should be noted that this is not the first time ISIS posted a video of children. Last month, a video went viral showing a 70-cm long, 4 year-old boy called Issa mustering up the strength to hold a Kalashnikov and threatening to cut the heads of infidels who defy the terrorist organization and his orders.

British authorities are working on retrieving Issa into British grounds safely, yet, his English mother, who joined ISIS in Syria 3 years ago, continues to praise his terrorist attitude.

Nonetheless, in an odious unprecedented debut, the dark-skinned 10 year-old child makes the first appearance of an ISIS child playing the role of an executioner.

ISIS had announced the death of its left-handed executioner, John in an international coalition airstrike, which had targeted his vehicle in Al-Raqqah, located 160 kilometers east of Aleppo.
