Dramatic video has been released of Iraqi police stripping a would be ISIS Child Suicide Bomber of his explosive belt.
It was set to be a suicide bombing for ISIS in Kirkuk and after the belt is removed, the visibly shaken boy is carefully taken away.
Kurdistan 24 from Irbil, Iraq aired the capture ISIS Child Suicide Bomber from this last Sunday:
Authorities have said the 15-year-old ISIS Child Suicide Bomber came to Kirkuk only a week ago from Mosul, ISIS’ most significant stronghold outside Syria.
The boy was said to have burst into tears as authorities arrested him.
“He was captured before the ISIS Child Suicide Bomber reached his destination, which was a Shia mosque,” Najmaldin Karim, the governor of Kirkuk Governorate, told CNN. “The security guards noticed there was something wrong, especially that there was another suicide attack a bit earlier, and they captured him.”
Karim said the terrorist organization “trained and brainwashed” the boy. “They tell them if they do this, they will go to heaven and have a good time and get everything that they ever wanted,” he said.
The incident came just a day after a young boy detonated a suicide bomb at an outdoor Kurdish wedding in Turkey. He killed 51 guests and wounded dozens of others.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan blamed the attack on ISIS and said the attacker was between the ages of 12 and 14.
ISIS has a long history of exploiting children through propaganda and other nefarious means.
“We have had reports of children, especially children that are mentally challenged, who have been used as suicide bombers, most probably without them even understanding what has happened or what they have to expect,” Renate Winter, an expert with the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, told CNN in 2015.
UNICEF, recently reported that thousands of children have been abducted in Iraq, according to the Independent.
Of course Obama, Hillary and the left have been openly supporting ISIS and it’s supporters. So really, “What difference does it make?”
