    which of course may have been completely inaccurate)

    EDIT
    found related video from yesterday:
    and now saw pro-Government reports of Sheikh Miskeen cleared

    Good morning RUSSIA
    Hello
    You're our friends our
    brothers THANK YOU)

    I have been warning for some time that ISIS are literally breeding a new generation of terrorists who are to be conditioned from birth to be the ultimate jihadi terror weapon.

    Above may be the first evidence of this, with a 6 or 7 year old playing a prominent part in an execution video.

    Imagine how easy it would be for them to send that child and others like him to sneak into the west, Russia or even China in 5-10 years time, when they are still young enough to be considered children and given all the specials refugee status treatment of that, yet are physically powerfully enough to mount attacks.

    It would be a whole new level of horror and terror to have child soldiers launch commando attacks in world cities and have security forces being forced to engage them.

    Even the most well trained and disciplined police and military counter terrorism professionals will have a moment of instinctive pause and resistance at pulling the trigger when it's a child he/she is staring at down the barrel. A hesitation that might cost them their lives.

    Even if they do go through with it, the guilt and psychological harm they are likely to suffer from having to have done such an act would likely make PTSD seem like a good day.

    I see those horrors in our collective futures unless we end ISIS soon.

    ... while this video purports to show Rebels in there today:

    EDIT
    I've read (mostly on Twitter though) they've actually been storming "Battalion 82 Headquarters" for two days now:
