Former Isis Bodyguard: We Beheaded Children in Front of Parents
A former Islamic State [IS] bodyguard of a notorious militant has revealed the depravity of the group’s actions in their battle to expand their self-proclaimed caliphate in Iraq and Syria.
The bodyguard of Saddam Jamal, named only as Abu Abdullah, told The Daily Telegraph about his time guarding Jamal in an exclusive interview.
The IS militant was formerly a drug dealer before joining the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and then defecting to IS.
His bodyguard spoke of a series of shocking incidents, including when Jamal forced a mother and father to watch as a fellow jihadist killed their children one at a time.
“Starting with a thirteen-year-old boy, they lined up the sons according to their height and beheaded them in that order,” said the bodyguard.
“Afterwards, they hung the boys’ heads on the door of the school the family had been hiding in.”
Abdullah was clear that, for Jamal, being a militant of IS was not about a higher calling but to obtain more power.
“There are, of course, some who really believe that killing and whipping is the correct way to spread Islam,” he told The Daily Telegraph.
“But for Jamal, he doesn’t really care if the mission spreads Islam. All he cares about is becoming more powerful. Now, if a stronger organisation emerges, he will join it. And there are lots of men in Isil just like him.”
Force, fear and hypocrisy
Abdullah said that Jamal would copy his fellow “emirs” in IS and control their territory through force, fear and hypocrisy.
