Video emerges of Daesh executing 200 children in Syria last year

Published November 10th, 2015 - 05:10 GMT

Sickening new footage appears to show ISIS terror thugs gunning down 200 Syrian children in a savage mass execution.

The video, which has been circulated online by a Yemen-based anti-ISIS activist, shows the children bound and forced to lie face down in a line.

The killers then open fire with automatic rifles. The raw footage is too horrifying to be shown.

The veracity of the video has not been confirmed, but the terror group's slick propaganda team is known to film their barbaric executions and circulate them. Islamic State is also known to have executed children in the past.

The video sparked anger online.

One commenter wrote: "God burn Daash (an insulting Arabic term for ISIS) and their supporters."

Another added: "Lack of ethics and humanity, under the guise of religion."

SIS may be trying to step up their fear campaign in the wake of series of heavy losses to Kurdish-led militia and Iraqi government forces.

The killers have stepped up the savagery of their murder campaign with increasingly sick and inventive execution techniques.

The group has subjected scores of people to brutal punishments caused widespread terror after taking large parts of Iraq and Syria last year.

In June ISIS released harrowing footage appearing to show caged prisoners being lowered into a swimming pool to drown, alongside other horrific executions.

Meanwhile, it emerged today that the United Nations is expecting huge numbers of civilians to flee when Iraqi forces mount an offensive to retake the city of Mosul from Islamic State militants.

It is not clear when Iraqi forces will be ready to attack the northern city. The much anticipated counter-offensive has been repeatedly postponed because Iraqi forces are unprepared and bogged down in battle elsewhere.
