Boys Fighting for Al-Qaeda in Syria


The recently-merged Al-Qaeda terror organizations of Iraq and Syria have put out a video showing an Al-Qaeda training camp for youth near the city of Abu-Kamal area in the Deir Ezzor district of eastern Syria. The video shows dozens of masked boys undergoing training in self defense and firing handguns, assault rifles and sniper rifles at a picture of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

Wearing T-shirts labeled "Boys of the Caliphate" while riding a bus to the training camp, they sing of their attempt to establish an Islamic state. In the classroom, they learn phrases praising the value of death in the way of Allah. At the end of the video, against the Al-Qaeda symbol, rifles, a machine gun and a rocket-propelled-grenade launcher, one of the boys pledges to act to victory or death.
