After training what they call “the cubs”, the Islamic State have started using these brainwashed children as suicide bombers.
One of them killed more than 50 guests, including 20 children under 14, at a wedding in Turkey by detonating himself on Sunday.
On Sunday night, Iraqi police managed to capture another would be suicide bomber and restrain him while he constantly tried to detonate himself.
Chilling images and a video, which appeared on Monday night, of the police removing the explosive belt from the boy aged only 12 years speaks for itself the problem of the Middle East.
The boy is seen in the video shot in in Kirkuk clearly upset with his failure highlighting how deep the Islamic State barbarians have planted the seeds of hate in his young mind.
The security personnel carefully cut the belt from the boy’s torso. Once the belt has been removed, the boy is scooped up and taken away.
According to the authorities, the boy came from Mosul, the stronghold of the Islamic State and was planning to blow up 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.”
Like all other radical Islamic groups and terrorist organisations, the Islamic State tells its members that they will attain heaven for their acts.
Authorities later detonated the bomb vest in a controlled explosion.
