Video of children training to be terrorists goes viral

Al-Qaeda-Little-Commandos terrorist training childrenTwo videos circulating on the Internet, going viral on Monday, show terrorist groups training young children, even earlier than originally expected.

Debuted by The Blaze, the video 20 children are at a “firing range” using handguns and AK-47s. These are elementary age kids and are knocked back by the weapon’s recoil.

According to Ynet, an al-Qaeda affiliated group posted the video online titled “Little Commandos.”

Ynet offers this information on the group behind the video:

The video shows the children, some of them apparently only five-years-old, firing various weapons, including pistols, AK-47s and machine-guns, dressed in traditional Muslim attire.

The Turkistan Islamic Movement operates several training camps in Pakistan and has been responsible for a series of bombing in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Since 1997, the group reportedly killed more than 150 people and injured more than 400 in terror attacks for the cause of liberating East Turkistan, an area under Chinese control officially known as Xinjiang.

The group’s activities are mostly directed against Chinese nationals.

This as a reporter with The Telegraph visited a Hamas-run school in Gaza where boys are being taught “how to fire Kalashnikovs, throw grenades and plant improvised explosive devices.”
