Horrific video claims to show a nine-year-old ‘ISIS supporter’ being executed by Shia militia – but is it just the latest piece of jihadi propaganda?
A horrific video has emerged claiming to show a nine-year-old child being brutally murdered by members of a Shia militia who accused him of being a supporter of the Islamic State terror group.
The footage was purportedly filmed near the Iraqi city of Tikrit, where a coalition of 30,000 Iraqi Army soldiers and private Shia armies launched a campaign to oust ISIS militants earlier this week.
The horrific film has not been independently verified and could easily be just the latest piece of propaganda to be released by the terrorist organisation. Nevertheless the sheer brutality of
the clip calls into question the policy of allowing local armed groups to lead the fightback against ISIS.
