(AhlulBayt News Agency) - ISIS commanders seem to have reached a new level of desperation in resisting the Iraqi forces in Tal Afar, now turning on the children to slow down the progress of the troops.
Abu Hamza al-Ansari, less than 12 years old, was indoctrinated by ISIS and was deployed on Monday as a suicide bomber in Tal Afar.
In the pictures released by ISIS media, the signs of fear and astonishment are evident in the face of the young child. Other images show the car exploding near the village of al-Batisha, east of Tal Afar.
According to the video reports, children have been used by ISIS in suicide bombings against the forces they are fighting in Iraq and Syria.
However, since the battle on Tal Afar began on August 20, the Iraqi forces have made significant progress inside the city of Tal Afar and its outskirts, killing dozens of armed militants.
