    A 12 year old boy, considered a pro-government fighter, has been beheaded by Syrian rebels, later labelled an ‘individual error’

    A Syrian rebel group funded by the US has been accused of beheading a 12-year old Palestinian boy, considered a rebel fighter, in Aleppo. A video circulated on social media on 19 July shows the boy on the back of a truck being taunted by members of the rebel group before being beheaded, matching similar atrocities committed by the Islamic State (ISIS), which has killed hundreds of captives held in Iraq and Syria in the last three years.

    The boy was accused of belonging to the pro-Assad government armed group known as the Jerusalem Brigade. The Noor al-Din al-Zinki group attributed this to “individual error” and unrepresentative of the group’s policy. However the Jerusalem Brigade denied that he was a fighter with them in a statement on social media, but a boy living with his family, along with other families in a poor neighbourhood of Aleppo.

    The US government, which has provided military support to the Noor al-Din al Zinki rebel group, stated it was investigating the case after being questioned on whether it will continue supporting the group. An earlier report by Amnesty International (AI) has accused the rebel group of several “war crimes and other violations of international humanitarian law” committed throughout the Syrian Civil War, including abductions and torture. AI further reports that the rebel group had received military and financial aid from Great Britain, France, Turkey, US, and Gulf countries.

    Syria conflict: Boy beheaded by rebels 'was fighter'

    The sister of a boy filmed being beheaded by Syrian rebels has disputed a claim by a pro-government Palestinian militia that he was not a fighter.

    Syria conflict: Boy beheaded by rebels 'was fighter'

    One video purportedly shows Nour al-Din al-Zinki fighters taunting the boy before his death

    The sister of a boy filmed being beheaded by Syrian rebels has disputed a claim by a pro-government Palestinian militia that he was not a fighter.

    The Liwa al-Quds (Jerusalem Brigade) said Abdullah Issa was just a 12-year-old from a poor refugee family who lived in a rebel-held area of Aleppo.

    His sister later said on Facebook that he was a Syrian from Homs who went to "fight and defend his country".

    Members of the Nour al-Din al-Zinki Movement are accused of killing him.

    The group said those responsible were handed over to a judicial committee, and denounced the killing as a "violation".

    The US, which has provided military support to the Nour al-Din al-Zinki Movement in the past, said it was seeking more information on what it described as "an appalling report".

    "If we can prove that this was indeed what happened and this group was involved... it would give us pause about any assistance or, frankly, any further involvement with this group," state department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters.

    Two short videos emerged online on Tuesday morning showing a boy being taunted and then beheaded by a group of Syrian rebels.

    The first shows the frightened boy sitting in the back of a pick-up truck, surrounded by five men. From the video he appears to be as young as 10, although other reports suggest he is considerably older.

    One of the men grips him by the hair as they accuse him of being a member of Liwa al-Quds, a Palestinian militia that fights in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and was involved in clashes with rebels on Tuesday in Handarat, to the north of Aleppo.

    The second video shows the boy's murder.

    The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the boy was seized by rebels in Handarat, but that the killing took place in Aleppo's Mashhad district. The UK-based monitoring group could not confirm if the boy was a Palestinian or a child soldier.

    Liwa al-Quds issued a statement on Facebook saying that its investigation had found he was a 12-year-old Palestinian named Abdullah Issa, who lived in Mashhad with his family.

    It also said he had apparently been receiving medical treatment before being seized, noting that one photograph showed an intravenous drip in his arm.

    Liwa al-Quds accused the rebels of killing the child simply because he was Palestinian, in order to take "cheap and despicable revenge" for battlefield losses.

    However, in a Facebook post, his sister, identified as "Zoze Aisa", said she was angry and upset that people were depicting her brother as Palestinian.

    She said he was a "son of al-Assad", referring to the Syrian president, from the Wadi al-Dahab district of Homs, who went to fight rather than stay behind and receive his medical treatment.

    The Nour al-Din al-Zinki Movement said it denounced and condemned "such abuses", but insisted they were "individual errors that represent neither our typical practices nor our general policies".

    "All individuals who undertook the violation have been detained and turned over to the [judicial] committee for investigations in accordance with the relevant legal standards," it added.

    Earlier this month, Amnesty International published a report detailing a series of violations allegedly committed by Nour al-Din al-Zinki Movement fighters in Aleppo, including abductions and torture.

    Syria war: Rebels ‘behead 12

    Syria war: Rebels ‘behead 12-year-old boy’ on video

    Nour al-Din al-Zinki rebel group calls beheading an “individual error” that does not represent movement’s policy.

    A previous version of this article estimated the age of the boy at about 10 years old. His actual age, according to the Jerusalem brigade, was 12, as reflected in the altered headline.

    A video circulating on social media appears to show Syrian rebels beheading a Palestinian boy who they accused of being a pro-government fighter.

    The video, posted online on Tuesday, shows a group of men in the back of a truck cutting off the head of the terrified boy.

    Before the gruesome murder, the men accuse the boy of being a member of the Liwa al-Quds (Jerusalem brigade), a Palestinian armed group fighting alongside Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government.

    The Jerusalem brigade posted a statement on its official Facebook page on Wednesday, identifying the boy as 12-year-old Abdullah Issa, who they said was not a fighter.

    “He lived in al-Mashhad [Aleppo] with his family, among multiple poor families that live in the area under the control of terrorists,” read the statement, adding that the boy was ill.

    “By taking one glance at the child – the argument that he was a fighter is immediately disapproved,” the group said.

    In the video, one of the rebels shouts: “He sent us a child today, he no longer has men!” seemingly referring Assad.

    “We will leave no one in Handarat,” they added, referring to the city north of Aleppo where heavy fighting between rebels and government forces has been taking place.

    The rebels have been identified as members of the Nour al-Din al-Zinki Movement. On Tuesday, the movement published a press release on its Twitter page condemning the killing of the boy and calling the beheading an “individual error that does not represent the general policy of the movement”.

    The United States, which has previously provided military support to the Nour al-Din al-Zinki Movement, said it was “seeking more information” and that it could not confirm the “appalling report” at a press briefing on Tuesday.

    “If we can prove that this was indeed what happened and this group was involved in it, I think it would certainly give us pause,” State Department Spokesman Mark Toner told reporters, after being asked whether this incident would affect US assistance to this specific group.

    The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said the video shows fighters from rebel factions “slaughtering a boy member from the gunmen loyal to the regime”.

    “The boy was captured during the clashes at Handarat camp this morning,” the Observatory said in a statement.

    A report published earlier this month by human rights group Amnesty International details several “war crimes and other violations of international humanitarian law” committed by the Nour al-Din al-Zinki Movement, as well as other rebel groups, throughout the Syrian Civil War.

    The alleged war crimes include abductions and torture.

    Citing sources close to the United States “northern operation command,” a coordination body allegedly responsible for providing military support to rebels, Amnesty’s report says the Nour al-Din al-Zinki Movement had in the past received military and financial aid from the US, Britain, France, Turkey and several Gulf states.

    The funding was apparently halted in September 2015 when the movement joined two other groups that were accused of kidnapping Italian aid workers.

    The death toll in the Syrian conflict, which began with mostly unarmed demonstrations against al-Assad in March 2011, has risen to more than 280,000 people, while half the country’s population have been forced from their homes, according to United Nations estimates.

    Staffan de Mistura, UN special envoy to Syria, estimated last month that the actual death toll could be as high as 400,000 people.
