Syrian rebels beheaded an 11-year-old boy in the latest sickening killing to be captured on camera.The men appear to taunt the bound and terrified child, who they claim is a captured pro-government Palestinian fighter, before grabbing his hair and cutting his throat with a knife.
The BBC reports incident took place in Handarat, north of Aleppo, where there has been heavy fighting.
The area is the location of the Palestinian refugee camp of Ein El Tal.
A total of 7,000 people lived there before armed groups forced them to flee in 2013.
The boy was identified on social media identified as ‘Abdullah Issa’.
The men in the first video say he is a member of the Liwa al-Quds (the Jerusalem Brigade), a Palestinian pro-government militia.
Enab Baladi, a pro-opposition news website, said the boy was captured in Handarat by the Nour al-Din al-Zinki Movement, which governs parts of Aleppo city and al-Qassemiya village in the western part of Aleppo governorate.
The leader Toufic Shehab al-Dine asserted the group’s independence from the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, the main force fighting Assad, and its military wing, the Free Syrian Army.
