Sickening footage has emerged of Syrian rebels decapitating an 12-year-old boy for being a spy.
The video, posted online on July 19, shows a group of men in the back of a truck cutting off the head of the terrified boy. The boy, reportedly 12 years-old, was beheaded even as rebels yelled Allahu-Akbar.
Before the gruesome killing, the men accused the boy of being a member of a Palestinian group fighting for Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad. In the video, one of the rebels shouts: “He Sent Us A Child Today, He No Longer Has Men!” seemingly referring Assad.
Syrian Observatory For Human Rights said the men were fighters from the Nour Al-Din Al-Zinki movement, a rebel group. Nour Al-Din Al-Zinki has reportedly received military support channeled from Turkey, including U.S.-made TOW missiles. The young boy’s beheading matches some of the worst brutalities committed by the Jihadist Islamic State group.
