In yet another shocking propaganda video, released by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), children as young as five years old are shown being given training by the terrorists.
The nine-minute video shows young boys dressed in camouflage fatigues standing in a queue and performing exercises, according to news reports.
They are also seen wearing black bandanas, which are associated with ISIS, and reciting verses from Quran at the Al Farouq Institute for Cubs in Raqqa.
The children shown in the video are reportedly the kids of foreign nationals who have joined the terror group in Syria.
The authenticity of the video, which has been posted on the Internet, is yet to be verified.
The video supports the report issued by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child last year which stated that the militant group was “recruiting and using children in hostilities and targeting civilians”.
The report also reportedly stated that ISIS “has established training camps to recruit children into armed roles under the guise of education”.
It further stated that the the presence of such camps indicate that the ISIS is provides weapons training for children.
