New ISIS Video Appears To Show Child Executing Alleged Spy
In what seems like the latest cruelty done by ISIS, a video has been released showing a boy no older than twelve appearing to shoot a Mossad spy identified as Muhammad Said Ismail Musallam, an Israeli Arab, BBC News reported.
The 13-minute video shows the militant boy dressed in camouflage, standing behind a man wearing orange jumpsuit and kneeling on the ground. Another man makes a brief statement in French before the boy moves in and shoots Musallam on the forehead.
The video also shows Musallam calmly confessing he was hired by the Mossad, narrating the story of how he was approached by an Israeli police officer to work in the their secret service. He even said he had his father’s consent for the job, as there was a lot of money in it.
His father denied the claim, according to The Times of Israel. “I know my son. I raised him well. I am sure he’s not working for the Mossad.”
His father’s response contradicts the confession of Musallam. According to his father, his son left to join the IS. Soon afterwards, he contacted his family online from Raqqa, the de facto capital of ISIS in northern Syria. It is at this point when Musallam expressed his willingness to return home.
“I saw him with a long beard and long hair and a Kalashnikov,” the father said. “He told me, ‘Look dad, I am fed up here, it is a country of war, and I want to come back.'”
About a month back, Musallam’s father received a call from an unidentified man who informed him that his son has been put into captive after fleeing ISIS.
“They did not want to let him leave because if he comes back, he might be caught by the Israelis and tell them what he had seen. So they wanted to get rid of him,” the father said.
