SIS has hit a new low of depravity with the Friday release of a video showing a boy sawing off the head of a Syrian soldier with a small knife.
The child, clad in camouflage, leans over the handcuffed prisoner and jerks the man’s head back by his hair. Then the boy methodically cuts off the man’s head.
An older militant stands watch over the killing, according to Britain’s The Independent.
The video, seen by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, is believed to be the first showing a child decapitating an ISIS prisoner. It was taken near the ancient city of Palmyra, which was overrun by ISIS killers in May. Meanwhile, in France, three young men appeared in a Paris court, charged with plotting an attack on a military base after receiving orders from ISIS, prosecutors said.
