The Islamic State militants have released yet another sick video, where adult jihadists are seen training young boys and subjecting them to harsh treatments such as kicking and lashing to apparently make them strong.
The new footage that emerged on YouTube shows young boys undergoing rigorous military training to become militants, and jhadi trainers are seen meting out harsh punishments when the boys fail to carry out some of the daunting training activities.
Nearly three dozen boys are shown learning martial arts, how to disarm or capture an enemy fighter and also how to bear brute force. At one point in the video, a man is shown hitting a child on the head with a big stick and the stick is then seen breaking on impact.
An adult trainer is seen repeatedly punching and kicking boys on their sides, legs, and abdomens as the boys learn how to tolerate the force. From the video, it appears that physical abuse of children by their instructors is part of the training procedure.
The newly released footage comes after its first part was released earlier in October as noted by Press TV.
The descriptions in both the videos claim that the training camps are located somewhere in Iraq's northern Nineveh province, which shares borders with Syria. This comes as reports claim the presence of at least five youth training camps in the Syrian province of Raqqa and one in the town of Tabqa, which is specifically designed for children under 15.
