In one of its cruelest acts yet, the Islamic State has reportedly blown up a baby as part of a demonstration showing how to handle explosives, The Clarion Project reported.
Senior Iraqi sources say ISIS forces wired up a baby with explosives and then blew the poor child up as part of a training exercise.
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s terror network wanted a human victim to illustrate how best to strap explosives to a human being.
Dozens of Islamic State recruits watched as the baby was blown up by remote control.
Having executed the baby’s father weeks ago because being accused of taking part in the killing of an Islamic State member, the gunmen wanted to kill his child.
Staggeringly they wired up the victim before detonating the explosives in front of dozens of recruits, in a bid to dehumanize them.
The murder reportedly happened this past Friday in Iraq’s violent Diyala Province, North East of Baghdad, the war-torn country’s capital.
It was reported by Diyala’s Provincial Security Committee Chairman Sadiq el-Husseinim who told the local Arabic-language A-Sumeriah News: “The organization booby-trapped the baby in front of dozens of armed ISIS men and then detonated it from afar.
He explained that the purpose of the operation, including the rigging of the baby and the detonation of the explosives attached to it, was part of an ISIS training exercise teaching various booby-trapping techniques.
“The organization doesn’t care about the most basic human values,” said el-Husseini. “Their crimes are incalculable, and the blowing up of the baby is the best proof of the threat of ISIS ideology to the state.”
