A new video purportedly released by the Islamic State shows three ISIS child soldiers executing three captives in a video titled “Message to the Helpful of Khorasan.” Khorasan refers to a historical region lying northeast of Iran, but sometimes includes all of central Asia and parts of India. The video was released by “Wilayat al-Furat”, or “the State of the Euphrates”, a portion of the biblical river currently under Islamic State occupation.
In the video, a masked jihadist delivers a long speech while three militants stand behind him with guns. After his speech, three children are shown standing in front of older militants. Three men dressed in jumpsuits are then shown on their knees. The children execute the men.
