A Yazidi mother has told how her four-year-old son was taken from her to join an ISIS terror training camp where he was forced to learn passages from the Koran, Sharia Law and even given a sword and taught how to behead his own mother. Bohar, not her real name, could do little but watch as her young son was handed a sword by their captors, who told him ‘this is to kill your mother’. Later, he revealed they were training him to chop people’s heads off, shoot guns and hate his own people, at an age when most children around the world are just learning to read.
According to reports, Her son was never forced to carry out the perverted act, but his mother is adamant if her son had stayed he would have been forced to kill for ISIS. In an exclusive interview, Bohar, 35, said: ‘ISIS trained my son to learn the Koran, how to speak Arabic, how to pray and how to use a sword.’
Speaking from a refugee camp in Dohuk, northern Iraq, Bohar said: ‘They told him that Yazidis are Kafir, Arabic for ‘non-believers’ and told him he had to fight them. ‘This one time the ISIS man gave him a sword and said this is to kill your mother.’ Bohar, her son Hamo, not his real name, and her three other children were captured by ISIS last August, just south-east of Sinjar Mountain.
Unable to flee, they were imprisoned with 2,000 other Yazidi, from where they were shunted between prisons in Tal-Afar and Badush in Mosul – as evil ISIS militants decided their fate.‘In Badush prison ISIS took my eldest daughter and my eldest son who is 12. They took them to Syria,’ she said. ‘Some friends later told me my daughter and son were taken to Raqqa, where I believe they still are,’ she added.
