From beheadings to people being burned alive, it seems that with each new execution video, ISIS seeks to outdo themselves. The Islamic State militants have released a new and sickening video which shows a young boy of about 10 years old shooting dead 19-year-old Muhammad Said Ismail Musallam, an Israeli-Arab recruit who was captured last year by the terror group after he was deemed to be a spy.
Mussallam, who was taken by jihadists in Syria, was shown in the video kneeling in front of an armed ISIS militant in the middle of the field. He told the story of his training, before he is shot in the back of his head by the young boy.
In an interview published last month by Dabiq, the Islamic State's online English-language magazine, Muhammad Musallam said he had joined the insurgent group in Syria so as to report to the Israelis on its weapons caches, bases and Palestinian recruits. The paper quotes him as regretting his actions and urging would-be ISIS spies to desist.
'I say to all those who want to spy on the Islamic State, don't think that you're so smart and that you can deceive the Islamic State. You won't succeed at all. Stay away from this path. Stay away from helping the Jews and the murtaddin (apostates). Follow the right path.''
After his conduct aroused the suspicion of Islamic State commanders, Musallam wrote, he broke cover by phoning his father in East Jerusalem, leading to his capture.
However, according to Haaretz, a Jewish publication, Musallam's father denied his son was a spy, saying he went missing after visiting Syria to join ISIS.
'He is not a spy, he went over on his own - they recruited him on the internet. I don't know what they said to him or how they got into his head, but he is not connected with the Mossad, the Shin Bet security services or anyone else.'
