ISIS terrorists publicly flogged several teenagers after learning they played football — soccer, to the West.
The teens are members of the terror group’s so-dubbed “cubs of the caliphate,” the phrase used to describe the youngest terror trainees.
The boys were punished with 20 lashes each after they abandoned their duty statinos in Hawija, Kirkuk, for a quick game. The one who first suggested the game was given an extra 30 lashes.
Religion of tolerance — religion of peace — strikes again.
Football is banned under the cruel regime of ISIS, just one of the many restrictions the terror tyrants place on the day to day lives of their captive citizens.
An Iraqi source said: “IS punished six of the ‘Cubs of the Caliphate’ in a village in Hawija, southwest of Kirkuk, as they were playing football instead of leaving a security point they were charge of securing.
“Everyone was punished with 20 lashes, while one of them was punished with 50 lashes, for being behind the idea of playing.”
The brainwashed “cubs” are made up of young boys who are forced into potentially deadly tasks including transferring explosives and carrying out suicide attacks.
It comes amid claims ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is still alive, according to those fighting the depraved Daesh in the Middle East.
Baghdadi’s alleged death as a result of an airstrike in Syria, was initially reported by the Russian foreign ministry.
But doubt is now being spread amid reports that al-Baghdadi has gone into hiding.
An Iraqi interior ministry told Al-Arabiya the terrorist group head is “likely still alive and hiding near Raqqa”.
