Damascus: A child terrorist recruited by the ISIS has beheaded a captured Syrian Army Officer according to the founder of a group monitoring the Syrian conflict on Friday.

The child is among the few hundred ‘Cubs of the Caliphate’. They are children, ranging in age from pre-teens to mid-teens, given military training and hardline indoctrination after being recruited near schools, mosques and in public areas where Islamic State is operating.

The Syrian officer was captured by the militant group after it took control last May of Palmyra, a site of Roman ruins east of the city of Homs, according to Rami Abdul Rahman, the head of the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights head, who received a copy of the video.
