A leaked video by fighters from the so-called Iraqi militia executed an 11-year-old boy with bursts of bullets on his head in Diyala province in Iraq. Shoebat.com was able to obtain the footage, showing a child in handcuffs being brutally beaten while surrounded by a group of Iranian-backed Iraqi fighters. Then the child was executed with showers of bullets on the head.

A horrific video has emerged claiming to show a nine-year-old child being brutally murdered by members of a Shia militia who accused him of being a supporter of the Islamic State terror group.

The footage was purportedly filmed near the Iraqi city of Tikrit, where a coalition of 30,000 Iraqi Army soldiers and private Shia armies launched a campaign to oust ISIS militants earlier this week.

The horrific film has not been independently verified and could easily be just the latest piece of propaganda to be released by the terrorist organisation. Nevertheless the sheer brutality of the clip calls into question the policy of allowing local armed groups to lead the fightback against ISIS.

‘Did you not fire at us?’ one man towering over the boy shouts, to which the helpless child replies ‘By God I did not fire one single bullet.’

The armed men plead to be allowed to execute the young boy, who begs for them to spare his life.

Although the video clearly shows the murder of a young child, reports that the execution was carried out by Shia militia battling ISIS militants near Tikrit could not be independently verified.

The film has been widely shared by pro-ISIS social media accounts since it was first uploaded to LiveLeak yesterday as it plays into the terrorist sympathisers’ narrative that the Iran-back Shia militia attempting to oust ISIS from Tikrit are no better than the jihadis themselves.

This morning the United States’ top general said Iran’s direct support for an Iraqi push to dislodge ISIS from Tikrit could turn out to be ‘a positive thing’ if it does not inflame sectarian tensions.

The statement by General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, reflected the delicate balance Washington is trying to strike between limiting Iranian influence and allowing Iraqi leaders to determine their own path towards defeating ISIS.
