In a new video purportedly released by the Islamic State titled “The Nations Will Gather Against You,” 5 Kurds allegedly with the YPG are executed by boy soldiers. The video was released on August 26 on ISIS terrorist channels from “Wilayat ar-Raqqa, or “State of Raqqa,” an ISIS-occupied region of Syria. Raqqa acts as the “capital” of the so-called Islamic State. According to the Terrorism Research & Analysis Consortium, “Raqqa has been the seat of Islamic State control in Syria since IS moved its operations there from the environs of Aleppo in the summer of 2014. It had previously been a rebel-held center of operation.”

The video features multiple executions of at least 14 men being killed by ISIS men, boys, and seniors.

According to Site Intel Group, the boy executioners are children of foreign Islamic State militants and are identified by ISIS as British, Egyptian, Kurdish, Tunisian, and Uzbek citizens. According to the Daily Mail, the video shows JoJo, the son of female British jihadist Sally Jones, participating in an execution.

According to The Mirror, “Jones is one of the world’s most wanted terrorists and is believed to be on a hit list of 20 jihadis who will be targeted by the SAS in Syria, according to a report citing military sources.” The United Nations sanctioned Jones “as an agent operating on behalf of a terrorist organisation.”

he new video focuses on the ongoing damages and deaths suffered by civilian Syrians from airstrikes. At least 5 countries are currently bombing Syria, with Foreign Policy reporting that 2 days ago, Turkey began airstrikes in the region.

ISIS militants regularly embed themselves in civilian populations to make airstrikes more difficult for opposition forces and to drum up propaganda to validate their so-called “caliphate.” Earlier this month, ISIS released footage showing the aftermath of an alleged US airstrike in Manbij, Syria. According to Reuters, the airstrikes were aid to help Syria Democratic Forces, including the Kurdish YPG militia, take back the border town. Watch that video here.
