BAGHDAD: The ISIS rebel group has blown up a baby in order to teach its members the booby-trapping mechanisms during a training mission.
They brought a baby, the son of a civilian [who] was executed a few weeks ago in one of [their] training camps near Sharqat, northern Salahuddin... booby-trapped and blew up the child in front of dozens of ISIS militants by a remote, Iraqi News Agency reported on Sunday.
It was a training mission for ISIS members to learn the booby-trapping mechanisms, said Provincial governor Sadiq al Husseini, adding that the terrorist group does not care for the most basic human values.
The northern and western parts of Iraq have been plagued by violence ever since ISIS began their march through the Iraqi territory in June 2014.
The group has gained notoriety for its barbarity, heinous atrocities, and sacrilegious acts. The ISIS militants have been accused of committing gross human rights violations and war crimes in areas they control in Syria, Iraq, and Libya.
