ISIS Releases Video Of Child Executing Alleged Israeli Spy
The Islamic State released a video Tuesday of a child executing an alleged Israeli spy who had infiltrated the terrorist organization’s ranks.
A French-speaking fighter describes the boy as one of the “cubs of the caliphate,” a term the Islamic State has used to refer to boys who train to fight jihad under its direction. (RELATED: Shocking New Video Shows ISIS Training Cub Fighters)
The video shows a purported confession on the part of Muhammad Musallam, a 19-year-old from East Jerusalem who joined the Islamic State in Syria three months ago, according to Haaretz.
Speaking in the video, Musallam says he became a Mossad agent and was sent to gain intelligence on the Islamic State in Syria. He was detained shortly after joining the group and confessed to being a spy.
Then the video transitions to Musallam being taken to a field and summarily executed by the boy with a shot to the head and then three more shots.
The English-language, Islamic State magazine Dabiq contained an interview with Musallam last month.
The Islamic State previously released a video of a child executing two alleged Russian spies in January. (RELATED: New ISIS Video Features Kid Executioner)
