Islamic State militants abducts 111 Iraqi kids to be trained as terrorists

Baghdad: Islamic State terrorists have abducted 111 school children from various districts of the northern Iraqi city of Mosul to use them in terrorist moves, a media report said on Tuesday.

The abducted children, mostly aged between 10-15 years, have been transferred to the IS terrorist group`s educational and military centres for brainwashing, Iraq`s Arabic news channel Al Sumaria quoted Iraqi Kurdistan`s Democrat Party, spokesperson Saeed Mamuzini as saying.

He added that the IS terrorists also arrested 78 men who protested against the abduction of their children.

The Kurdish official noted that the militants have kidnapped 1,420 Iraqi children since the capture of the country`s second city over a year ago and forced them to receive military training, so that IS could use them in terrorist and intelligence operations.

Mamuzini previously said that IS terrorists had executed 15 of its own militants after facing a defeat in Bashiqa town northeast of Mosul, adding they were killed by children trained by the terrorist group.

Iraqi local and security officials have said that IS terrorists abducted 500 children in the eastern province of Diyala and western province of al-Anbar.

The IS started its campaign of terror in Iraq in early June 2014. The heavily-armed militants took control of Mosul before sweeping through parts of the country`s Sunni Arab heartland.

The terrorists have been carrying out horrific acts of violence against all Iraqi communities such as Shias, Sunnis, Kurds and Christians.
