ISIS has released a sick new propaganda video showing innocent children being plucked from orphanages to be trained as killers, The Sun reports. The three minute film begins by showing the orphans playing with toys and chatting – full of the innocence of childhood.
But as the film goes on it cuts to an image of ISIS’ sinister black and white flag, before showing kids dress in military fatigues as they perform army exercises and learn how to wage war. The sick video is titled “Caring for Orphans within the Islamic State” and has been professionally shot and edited by ISIS’ propaganda offices.
It starts by sharing children playing with toys and eating and drinking at a dinner table – with the girls forced to sit separately from the boys. An elderly man wanders around the room giving the children food, while the boys play on swings and slides and the girls chat and dance.
Seconds later everything changes however and cuts to the young boys wearing military clothing, being forced into stress positions, learn combat manoeuvres and prepare themselves for fighting on the frontline in Syria. The video is designed to cause outrage in the West due to its sick use of children as propaganda tools.
ISIS is increasingly showing children in its vile videos both as a way to highlight their savagery and to send a signal that their support will last for generations. Yesterday it emerged that ISIS had forced a girl of 12 to “execute” five women in a sickening new low even by the terror group’s depraved standards.
Despite daily atrocities in the region and the steady recruitment of child soldiers, it is believed to be the first time ISIS has forced a female child to commit a murder.
