The Islamic State (IS), better known as ISIS, an extremist group has been involved in several beheading and killings and now, taking their atrocity to a different level, the jihadist organization has reportedly blown up a baby while training its members how to handle explosives.

The atrocious move happened in Diyala Province on July 10, according to the provincial Security Committee Chairman Sadiq el-Husseini who detailed the event to a local Arabic news channel.
According to the reports, the father of the baby was executed few weeks ago after he reportedly took part in the killing of an Islamic State militant.
“The organization booby trapped the baby in front of dozens of armed ISIS men and then detonated it from afar,” Sadiq el-Husseini said.
The explosion of the child and its rigging was a training exercise of ISIS to instruct its members the booby-trapping techniques.
This is not the first time that the violence of the ISIS group has been reported against young kids. In one of the several ghastly acts in the past, the ISIS terrorists had cut a five-year-old boy in half. (Also Read: This is how ISIS sexually brutalized the captured women)
Apart from this, Islamic State extremists reportedly beheaded a 40-day-old infant after stopping a bus in northeast Syria in 2013. According to some unconfirmed reports, al-Baghdadi gave followers go-ahead to eat babies.
It is also reported that the group now intends to behead the Statue of Liberty in New York.
ISIS is quite famous for using children as fighters and executioners but this is the first time that the use of a baby for booby-traps training has been accounted.
