Suicide Bomber, Sex Slave, Fighter: ISIS Exploits Children

The Islamic State’s army of child soldiers is known as the “cubs of the caliphate.” These children are often kidnapped, brought to ISIS-run schools, drugged and re-educated according to the terror group’s fatalistic interpretation of Islam.The children are also exposed to the group’s most barbaric acts of human rights violations. They are shown, firsthand, the beheadings, mass shootings, burnings, and killings, in order to indoctrinate them into the world of violence that ISIS seeks to propagate.Child suicide bombers are a hallmark of the Islamic State and other terror groups. On March 25, 2016, a teenage suicide bomber detonated explosives at a youth soccer game south of Baghdad, killing 29 and wounding 60.ISIS kidnaps girls and boys alike. The girls are more likely to be sold into sexual slavery while the boys become combatants and suicide bombers.
