The youngster, who appears to be aged around 11, is identified as Abu ‘Imara al-‘Omri in an ISIS propaganda shot which boasts how the boy helped them wrestle back control of the village of Ghazl near Aleppo, in Syria.
The shocking images show the primary school age child toting a gun and gazing wistfully into the distance, while another shot shows his fortified truck, which would be packed with explosives, and reinforced to defy a hail of bullets from desperate troops trying to ward off an attack.
