ISIS recently released a chilling new nine-minute video showing a number of rounds of executions.  Particularly gruesome was the part that involved five child executers, most likely close to the ages of 12-13. In the video, the children can be seen with handguns poised to shoot Kurdish prisoners point-blank in their heads.

While one reads off threats to the Kurdish people, sneering that their Western allies are incapable of helping them, the others stand ready to pull the triggers, which each eventually they do.

The executions, which most likely took place in Raqqa, the Islamic State’s de facto headquarter, were preceded and followed by other executions. The first set, carried out by masked men in brown uniforms, shows the beheadings of four men of the Syrian opposition (and one shooting).
