U. S. and Iraqi security forces released a video in which children are enrolled, trained terrorists, reported BBC. Children who were aged under 11 years and have been trained in arms by al-Qaeda. Entries are open for shares of coalition forces in the detection of group hideouts in northern Baghdad, said U. S. military spokesman. The materials showing children brandishing weapons and grenades during training, states BBC.
In the recordings were captured over 20 children. On one of the videos presented simulated hijack in which a child hostage forced to kneel, touching a gun to his head. On the other kids are wearing black masks on their faces and announced over recent bloody slaughter hostages. According to the U. S. military such materials used for propaganda of the ideas of al-Qaeda and attracting new followers. U. S. troops still believe that the captured children have participated in the recordings completely voluntary and there is no indication that they were forcibly abducted or forced to participate. Very often the parents of these children are part of the Al-Qaeda and their children grow up in such an environment, which, Unfortunately it dooms them to follow the fate of their relatives, added the spokesman of the U. S. military. According to Iraqi Minister of Defense, however, these records are a sign of the desperate situation of Al-Qaeda and the children are taught mainly to kidnapping, to allow the group to strengthen its resources through bribes.
