The IS militants have recently released a picture showing a young child holding a Kalashnikov rifle in Syria.
The photograph was posted by a British woman who has reportedly joined the IS terrorists in Syria and is currently married to one of the militants.
The British woman’s parents say the picture may be of her new family.
She also posted a picture of herself holding a shotgun.
Around 500 Britons are believed to have gone to Syria over the last two years to engage in the foreign-backed militancy that seeks to topple the Syrian government.
This has moved Britain to look into introducing a package of anti-terror laws aimed at controlling possible threats from the militants once they come back home. The UK government is currently considering whether it can seize the passports of suspected ISIL militants returning from Iraq and Syria.
Britain has recently raised its terrorism threat level to "severe" over growing concerns of possible plots by the IS militants returning from Iraq and Syria.
Last month, Shiraz Maher, a senior research fellow at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR) at King’s College London, said that the British members of the IS group operating in Iraq and Syria are “the most vicious and vociferous fighters.”
