AL-CHIHUAHUA: Meet the World’s Smallest Jihadists

Screen Shot 2015-10-19 at 9.50.52 AMThere is nothing small about the crimes he is committing against humanity.

He is barely taller than his machine gun and has already earned the nickname ‘Al-Chihuahua’.

But that hasn’t stopped this three-foot-tall dwarf joining the terror war in Syria, it seems.

The mini jihadi is understood to have enlisted with the Al Qaeda-linked group Jabhat Al-Nusra which is fighting the Assad regime and the Islamic State.

Pictures posted online show him standing with his Kalashnikov assault rifle in camouflage uniform and an ammunition belt next to a pick-up truck that towers over him.

In another, he poses in sunglasses while brandishing the weapon in one hand.

The images were shared on Twitter by Leith Abou Fadel, editor-in-Chief of the English-language Arabic news website Al-Masdar News, who nicknamed him ‘Abu Ahmad Al-Chihuahua’.

Mr Fadel told MailOnline: ‘A friend shared his picture and I picked up on it.

‘I tried to find out more about him, but the information was limited. All we know is that he is a member of the Syrian Al Qaeda group Jabhat Al-Nusra.’
