Wow. This is just like the story of baby Jesus … not.
A sickening photograph has emerged of a tiny baby lying on an ISIS flag surrounded by guns and hand grenades.
The chilling image is the latest photo believed to have been posted by militants fighting in Syria and Iraq as part of their online propaganda campaign.
It shows the child – who appears to be less than six months old – lying on its back on the black flag now associated with the group terrorising the Middle East.
Where other babies its age might have soft toys scattered around them, the child has been cynically positioned next to a Kalashnikov rifle, a pistol and hand grenades.
The baby in the image – which was posted on Twitter beneath the hashtag #IS – is believed to be youngest child yet used as part of the group’s social media campaign.
The photo caused a furious backlash online, with one user accusing the organisation of using ‘babies as weapons to kill the innocent’.
The picture is the latest in a series of shocking images which raise fears that a generation of children in the region are being radicalised from a very young age.
