The Islamic State (ISIS) terror group carried out a brutal attack on two boys in Mosul for refusing to execute two civilians in front of their families.
The boys, aged 10 and 12, were part of a group of children trained by Islamic State to fight advancing Iraqi troops.
When the youngster refused to execute two prisoners, jihadist barbarians sliced off one of their hands.
“The Islamic State’s leaders issued orders to train a group of children on fighting in the group’s camps in Nables neighborhood, in the western side of Nineveh,” a source with Alsumaria News said on Thursday. “Meanwhile, members of the Islamic State terrorist group amputated the hands of two children, for refusing to carry out the execution sentence on two civilians in front of their families.”
As ISIS leader continue to lose territory in Mosul, they are resorting to more brutal intimidation tactics.
Mosul is one of IS’ last remaining strongholds in Iraq. Iraqi ground forces and allies, backed by the U.S., have been fighting for months to liberate the city.
Three months after a the U.S. launched a massive operation to retake the city of Mosul, Iraq’s Prime Minster Haider al-Abadi declared last Tuesday that eastern Mosul “fully liberated” from ISIS.
