JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (Worthy News)– Last month, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) kidnapped more than 140 Kurdish schoolboys to use for terrorist operations including suicide bombings, according to Human Rights Watch.

"ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra have targeted children for recruitment by providing military training in school settings or as part of broader education programs run by the groups," said a report this week from Human Rights Watch. "Former recruits described how leaders gave children particularly difficult or dangerous tasks and encouraged them to volunteer for suicide attacks."

While ISIS has not commented publicly about the mass abduction, it and other armed militia groups often recruit children for combat and battlefield support. A Syrian doctor told Human Rights Watch he treated a boy no older than 12 whose job was to whip prisoners in ISIS detention centers.

"They are trying to brainwash them," a man identified as the father of one of the Kurdish boys told CNN in a telephone interview. — Source
