In yet another heinous crime committed by the Islamic State terror organization, the group has blown up a four-year-old child just one week after executing the child’s father.
Speaking to Alsumaria News, a senior official in the Iraqi national organization the Popular Mobilization Forces, Jabar el-Maamouri, said ISIS exploded “a bomb that was attached to a four-year-old child through a remote-controlled device so that his organs would be blown apart. ISIS executed the boy’s father a week ago who they accused of participating in an attack on one their outposts a month ago that killed two ISIS gunmen.”
The killings took place in the Al-Shirqat district north of Salah ad Din province.
El-Maamouri called human rights organizations to “document the crimes of ISIS and to publicize the incident to the international community to condemn its funders and supporters with money and words.”
ISIS has controlled the Al-Shirqat district since June, 2014. The area is considered to be one of the organization’s strongholds.
Elsewhere in Iraq, a local source in Nineveh province who asked to remain anonymous told Alsumaria News that the Islamic State wiped out a village after its residents rebelled against the group.
“ISIS executed today (Monday, Dec. 28) dozens of civilians including old people, women and children in the village of Al-Choud in area of Al-Keraya (85 kilometers south of Nineveh),” he said.
The source explained that the Islamic State conducted the executions after residents of the village demanded that Islamic State gunmen leave the village.
