There are new concerns over the next generation of terror. Disturbing photos posted online show young children and even babies holding guns and wearing Al Qaeda gear.
Greg Palkot reported that they are being called the “children of Al Qaeda.”
The photos were supposedly posted by parents said to be militants fighting with Al Qaeda-linked groups in Syria against the Assad regime. One picture was captioned on Twitter: “World’s youngest terrorist.”
Alarming video also shows older kids in terror training camps. The videos are used as propaganda tools to recruit others.
A report by the United Nations says that young people are being recruited for various roles within the Syrian opposition. It also cites evidence of teenage casualties.
More than 10,000 children are said to have been killed over the past three years by the Assad regime. Thousands more have been injured, maimed, imprisoned and tortured.
