August 31, 2016 - 5:57
TEHRAN (FNA)- Security sources in Nineveh disclosed that the ISIL has named a German kiddo for leading the terrorist group's execution squad in the province. 
"The ISIL has started recruiting 10 to 17-year-old children and is using them for suicide attacks against the security forces in Nineveh and is now using the same kids for firing squads," the security sources told al-Soumeriya news website on Wednesday.
"After the ISIL decreased the salaries of its members, many of them have defected or are refusing to fight and therefore, the ISIL has been forced to use children," the source added.
"The ISIL has now chosen a German child as the commander of its execution brigades," he said.
A shocking new video released by the ISIL terrorist group earlier this month showed a British boy executing a prisoner with a handgun in Syria.
Syria: ISIL Members Disobey Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi's Order
September 1, 2016 - 10:43
TEHRAN (FNA)- The terrorists of the ISIL in the recent battle in Manbij in the Syrian province of Aleppo have disobeyed the orders of the group's leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, a US general said.
A top US general said the ISIL militants defied their leader's orders to fight to the death in a recent battle, instead retreating to the North, CNN reported.
Gen. Joseph Votel, the commander of the US forces in the Middle East, added that the refusal to follow orders occurred during the battle for the recently liberated town of Manbij in Syria.
ISIL leader Abu Bakr Al-Bagdadi told fighters in Manbij "to fight to the death" and "they didn't follow his direction," according to Votel, questioning how much command and control ISIL leadership has over its forces.
Still, he said that ISIL has a "strong network" that relies on "guidance from centralized leadership."
