A 15 year old Iraqi child was captured just before he was about to detonate a suicide vest at a sports stadium in Iraq on the orders of the Islamic State back in August.
The boy, Mahmoud Ahmed, got nervous as he entered the stadium, and told the Sky News reporter that, “When I reached the target I knew it was wrong. When I saw the young kids I knew it was wrong immediately. I returned back to him (my handler) but he said go straight back. I told him no and he said this is an order from Abu Islam (an IS commander). I returned back around the stadium and they caught me.”
Once 15 year old Ahmed was in custody, he told a chilling story of his indoctrination into becoming a suicide bomber for IS to the Sky News reporter.
IS is recruiting children as suicide bombers due to their depleting numbers.
