Iraq’s joint military forces repelled ISIL’s attacks on their military positions in the Suburban areas of the city of Beiji in Salahuddin province.

In a relevant development on Wednesday, it was disclosed that the ISIL has abducted children near Beiji city to prepare them for suicide attacks.
The local sources revealed that the terrorist group trains the children under the name of ‘Children of the Caliphate’ program as it has increased its reliance on missions by children to carry out suicide attacks.
The videos released by the ISIL from its operations in Manbij in Syria’s Aleppo province shows children participating in an attack on a military base in Manbij.
Other photos released also show the children wearing military uniforms and standing beside the ISIL terrorists in Anbar province, Iraq.
The ISIL’s media office in Tigris region announced that a Belgian Child named Abu al-Nour Beljiki has carried out a suicide attack in Nineveh’s al-Qayyara region.
Last Thursday, Hussein al-Qaedi, an official responsible for tracing abducted Yazidis in Duhok province, announced that the ISIL was training 1,400 Yazidi children, abducted from their families, to conduct suicide attacks.
peaking at a news conference, Qaedi also said that 400 Yazidi children who have been displaced from their hometowns in Sanjar and Bashiqa suffer mental and other diseases.
He added that the ISIL has kidnapped 3,770 Yazidis after 2,640 of the abducted population were taken back from the terrorist group in the past two years.
As the ISIL loses control over one city after another in its self-styled caliphate, it is tightening its grip on its captives, taking the Yazidis deeper into its territory.
Thousands of Kurdish-speaking Yazidis were taken prisoner and thousands more were massacred when ISIL terrorists overran their Northern Iraqi villages in August 2014. Since then, the Yazidi captives, specially women and children, have been conscripted into sexual slavery and used as human shields and suicide bombers.
