A teenager recruited by ISIS, said to belong to the “Cubs of the Caliphate,” killed his entire family by mistake.
According to Iraq News, a local source told Alsumaria News that the teen was a Cub of the Caliphate, children raised and trained by ISIS terrorists to hate and conduct murderous missions.
Under the veil of anonymity, the source shared: “The teenager’s belt exploded inside his home. It appeared later that all of his family, including three children, were killed.”
The teen was only one of many cubs who received dangerous suicide vests to be used in future missions.
Seeing teenagers in explosives is one of the Islamic State’s many strategies to keep their captive cities under control.
The source explained: “It comes as part of ISIS strategy to strengthen its grip on the ground and intimidate the people.”
Sadly, the youths are brainwashed and are turned against their people. They are used, abused and sent to kill themselves in the name of hatred.
Cubs join their older ISIS brothers in the ongoing destruction in the Middle East, prompting Iraqi authorities and security teams to clear city streets of fighters and their dangerous explosives.
Iraqi special forces and ISIS militants have been fighting for control of the strategic city Mosul, where security teams have been clearing explosives hidden in toys for weeks.
The latest news revealed Iraqi paramilitary forces successfully recaptured a strategic airbase outside Tal Afar but are still working to clear the base of jihads.
Meanwhile, thousands have fled Mosul and the number of casualties continues to rise.
