Egyptian Child Shown Killing ‘Prisoner’ in ISIS Video

A video released on Friday by the Islamic State shows five children, including one alleged to be Egyptian, carrying out the execution of Kurdish fighters with handguns.

The five children are identified in the video as British, Egyptian, Turkish, Tunisian and Uzbek. Dressed as ISIS fighters, they appear standing behind kneeling prisoners in orange jumpsuits.

“To the Atheist Kurds, what lies between me and you are days that make young men get old,” shouts the child captioned as Abu Al Baraa Al Tunisi (The Tunisian).

“The war with you has not yet begun. And you cannot be saved by America, France, Britain, or Germany … so dig up your graves and prepare your coffins and wait for a fate like that of these men,” the child carries on, before the others raise their guns and shoot the kneeling men in the back of the head.

The children, who seem to be aged 10-12 years, are identified as Abu Ishaq al-Masri (the Egyptian), Abu Abdullah al-Britani (the British), Abu Fu’ad al-Kurdi (the Kurd), Yusuf al-Uzbaki (the Uzbek), and Abu Al Baraa Al Tunisi (The Tunisian).

The 9-minute video is believed to have been recorded in Raqqa in Syria, according to the British Daily Mail, and it shows several mass execution scenes and carries a threatening message from the Islamic State.
