ISIS kidnaps 127 children in Mosul intending to turn them into blood-thirsty killers

Islamic State militants have kidnapped 127 children from the Iraqi city of Mosul and intend to turn them into blood-thirsty killers, it has been claimed.

The 11 to 15-year-olds were snatched with the intention of taking them to camps where they will be indoctrinated with the terror group’s sick ideology, according to Saeed Mamouzini, an official from the Kurdistan Democratic Party in Mosul.

In these camps, the child recruits are taught how to fire weapons, wrestle and perform close combat moves, and are known as the ‘cubs of the caliphate’.
