An sickening photo that shows an innocent child with an Islamic State birth certificate alongside a handgun and grenade has emerged in the newest ISIS propaganda.
Photo of newborn baby pictured with a grenade, handgun and birth certificate from terror group
The image was shared by an anti-ISIS campaigner in war-torn Syria, who posted it on Twitter
The image was shared by an anti-ISIS campaigner in war-torn Syria, who posted it on Twitter.
It was accompanied by the caption: "This child will be risk to you not just to us" in an apparent bid to raise concern of the threat the sick terrorist organisation poses not only to the Middle East, but to the rest of the world also.
Mirror UK reports that the unverified photo was shared by Abu Ward Al-Raqqawi, who claims that the child's name is Jrah.
In the post, Al-Raqqawi says that the child has been given an Islamic State birth certificate by the terrorists.
Reports say Australian National University terrorism expert Dr Clarke Jones believes the photo is authentic.
He told MailOnline: "By showing the birth certificate, and the fact that the group are indoctrinating babies, I think ISIS are indicating they will be around for a long time.
"It’s an interesting signal of life within the caliphate.
"Obviously by posting opposition to the Islamic State from within their borders the activist is operating with great risk."
