Following the recent bombardments of ISIS by Iraqi and Kurdish soldiers in the city of Mosul, terrible images of children being tortured by the soldiers have emerged.
The children, apparently civilians, were being beaten while being interrogated by the troops over whether they were loyal to ISIS. One young man was being hit with a hammer on the knee before a concrete slab was slammed on his head. Another set of photos/video show a young man sitting in a pickup truck, being hit on the head with the back of an assault rifle with his hands tied behind his back.
According to Amnesty International, they are several cases like this involving soldiers torturing children/ teens in Mosul. The organisation has warned that civilians caught in between the crossfire are likely to be executed or tortured.
