In screenshots from a new video purportedly released by the Islamic State, indoctrinated children of ISIS militants are shown beheading alleged Kurdish PKK spies in an abandoned amusement park in Deir ez-Zor, "Wilayat Al-Khayr," Syria. The video was released on ISIS terrorist channels on January 8. According to Terror Feed
, the Arabic title of the video translates to "Sometimes With His Own Blood." However, a later translation released on ISIS terrorist channels is "He Revived Me by His Blood." The Kurdistan Workers’ Party is often anglicized as “PKK” because its Latinized name is “Partiya Karkerên Kurdistanê.” The YPG is the military arm of the Partiya Yekîtiya Demokrat (PYD), a Syrian affiliate of the PKK. The PKK is currently a major force on the front lines fighting ISIS. Kurds are ethnically different than Syrians despite sharing a nation state. Kurds have also proven their reliability to effectively fight ISIS. According to Rudaw
, the Syrian Democratic Forces are led by the PKK. The SDF is a multi-ethnic and multi-religious alliance of Kurdish, Arab, Assyrian, Armenian, Turkmen, Circassian, and Chechen fighters in the Syrian Civil War. The SDF primarily fights Islamist groups like ISIS. Heavy is an independent news organization. We report acts of terror and violence so that the public may be fully informed.
