2 French boys are shown ‘killing two prisoners’ in sickening new ISIS execution video
Barbaric ISIS terrorists have released footage purporting to show two French boys executing prisoners in a remote forest.
The video, released by ISIS’s propaganda wing in an attempt to lure French nationals to its territory, is titled ‘In the Footsteps of My Father’.
Two French-speaking boys are the focus of the video as it shows them training with weapons and given an education in the group’s fanatical interpretation of Islam.
But it also purports to show them killing two men while the prisoners are kneeling with their heads bowed.
Both the youngsters appear to shoot the men at the end of the 14 minutes-long video, though the footage has been heavily edited.
The youngsters are seen aiming pistols at the two men’s heads. ISIS claimed the two prisoners killed were a spy and a soldier.
Other scenes show the boys undertaking target practice – as they take aim at pictures of Vladimir Putin, Francois Hollande and Barack Obama.
It marks the latest release by the terror group as it attempts to deflect attention from the series of battlefield defeats it has suffered in recent months.
The group has lost swathes of territory as airstrikes by the U.S., France, Britain and Russia bite, while damage to many ISIS-controlled oilfields has seen its finances plummet.
It also emerged today Britain’s Special Forces launched a devastating electronic warfare attack on ISIS terrorists in Libya.
The highly sophisticated ‘jamming strike’ crippled the group’s communications network around their stronghold of Sirte, a town on Libya’s Mediterranean coast – just 200 miles from Europe.
Meanwhile, ISIS launched a coordinated assault Sunday on a natural gas plant north of the capital that killed at least 12 people, according to Iraqi officials.
The attack started at dawn with a suicide car bomber hitting the main gate of the plant in the town of Taji, about 12 miles north of Baghdad.
Then several suicide bombers and terrorists broke into the plant and clashed with the security forces, an official said, adding that 25 troops were wounded.
A medical official confirmed the casualty figures. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.
The ISIS-affiliated Aamaq news agency credited a group of ‘caliphate soldiers’ for the attack.
The terrorists still control significant areas in northern and western Iraq, including the second-largest city of Mosul. It has declared an Islamic caliphate on the territory it holds in Iraq and Syria.
The group has recently increased its attacks far from the front lines in a campaign that Iraqi officials say is an attempt to distract from their recent battlefield losses.
