Reputed Islamic State media channels have released a video showing the execution of 3 alleged PKK spies by ISIS children in a rundown theme park in Deir ez-Zor, Syria. The video came out on January 8 and was shared on ISIS terrorist channels. Its translated title is “Sometimes With His Own Blood.”
In the video, urban destruction is shown before three children, accompanied by adults, execute three Kurdish fighters.
According to the Long War Journal, the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which is affiliated with the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), are frequent targets of the Islamic State. In the midst of the Syrian Civil War and the battle against ISIS, Kurds are also striving for a nation state. The PKK is a U.S.-designated terrorist organization.
