A video from Syria which used to be on Youtube used to say about itself:
This morning in North Aleppo (19.07.2016), the “rebels” praised that they have caught a Palestinian child (13) who is in their words, an “Assad soldier.” The child’s head is cut off!! The footage of the brutal murder of a child: Warning [for cruel content]: here.
UPDATE: the boy’s age was 12.
From the BBC today:
Syria conflict: Rebels ‘filmed beheading boy’ in Aleppo
2 hours ago
One video shows five men posing with the frightened child, who could be as young as 10, in the back of a truck. One of the men grips him by the hair.
The same man is later filmed apparently cutting the boy’s head off.
The incident is reported to have taken place in Handarat, north of Aleppo, where there has been heavy fighting.
The footage of the boy, who some on social media identified as “Abdullah Issa”, first appeared online on Tuesday morning.
The men in the first video say he is a fighter from Liwa al-Quds (the Jerusalem Brigade), a Palestinian pro-government militia operating in the Aleppo area.
Enab Baladi, a pro-opposition news website, said the boy was captured in Handarat by members of a local rebel group, the Nour al-Din al-Zinki Movement. …
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based monitoring group, also said that there had been violent clashes between pro-government forces and rebels in the vicinity of Handarat on Tuesday, and that it had received a copy of a video showing fighters killing a boy they had captured.
A report published by the human rights group Amnesty International earlier this month detailed a series of violations allegedly committed by Nour al-Din al-Zinki Movement fighters, including abductions and torture.
