The Kurdish official noted that the militants have kidnapped 1,420 Iraqi children since the capture of the country’s second city over a year ago and forced them to receive military training, so that IS could use them in terrorist and intelligence operations.

Mamuzini previously said that IS terrorists had executed 15 of its own militants after facing a defeat in Bashiqa town northeast of Mosul, adding they were killed by children trained by the terrorist group.

Iraqi local and security officials have said that IS terrorists abducted 500 children in the eastern province of Diyala and western province of al-Anbar.

The IS started its campaign of terror in Iraq in early June 2014. The heavily-armed militants took control of Mosul before sweeping through parts of the country’s Sunni Arab heartland.

The terrorists have been carrying out horrific acts of violence against all Iraqi communities such as Shias, Sunnis, Kurds and Christians.
