In recent footage from a Syrian Jihadist training camp in Aleppo, Mohammed Hussein, founder of Bin Laden Front, told a camera crew from VICE News that the militants’s goal was to topple the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, then its “aim is to liberate greater Syria.”

Hassan Abu Ali, a 15-year old fighter profiled in the report, told VICE, “Once Syria is liberated, our next mission is to liberate Palestine and Golan and continue our conquests. Thanks be to Allah.”

Hussein, the group’s leader, described the Bin Laden Front, one of many Jihadist armies fighting the regime outside of Aleppo and in the Syrian countryside, as a direct outgrowth of his training under 9-11 mastermind Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan, in 2001.

Dozens of ISIS Militants Killed by Egyptian Airstrikes in Sinai

Around 70 Islamic State militants were killed Sunday morning after Egypt's air force struck a number of outposts in the...

The footage, uploaded to YouTube last week, also profiled a female school teacher who, clad in burka and fatigues, was leading an all-female cell in military maneuvers through burnt-out Aleppo. Like the others, she said her anger was directed at the regime: “We are most unmerciful with those who raised their weapon to their own people and we would crush with our feet not only Bashar but whoever supports him.”

The greater question of Jihad and its call for death as a martyr was also probed in one scene, in particular, with 15-year-old Abu Ali, trying to convince his fair-haired younger sister, still a toddler, of the value of him dying for the cause. “The revolution has opened my eyes to the true nature of the regime,” he told her.

After pushing her on a swing, Abu Ali is sitting next to her on a sofa in their family’s house with his rifle by his side, and she asks him if he’s going to go play with it, and he responds that he’s going into battle with it.

“G-d willing, we’ll be victorious and then I’ll be granted martyrdom,” Abu Ali tells her, but she says, “No.”

“We’ll be victorious and we’ll be granted martyrdom,” he insists. She, again, responds, “No.”

“Why not?” he asks.

“We’ve got only one, Abu Ali, you,” she says.

“Excuse me?” the young Jihadist asks.

“You are our only Abu Ali,” she says, already, as a child, understanding the impact his choice of martyrdom will have on their family.

    every Muslim is a jihadist and the one who has no fear of death is the most difficult to defeat. The one who wish to die in a battle is not a common man who lives his life for this temporary world, but the one who wants to meet his Lord, his Creator, his Allah and for this purpose there is no better place than a field of Jihad.
    Your battle could be for a land but our Jihad is for the love of Allah and for heaven which is the most beautiful place.
    A christian of 14 years of age can become a famous singer…why can’t a Muslim of 15 years of age be a Jihadist. when a child becomes singer he is called talented and a child who becomes Jihadist is called “just 15 year old CHILD”
    No matter how well you plan to win, defeat is of the enemies of Islam for sure.
    Qur’an is the book from the Lord who gave jews Torah, christians Bible, and Zuboor. First read Qur’an and then comment about it.
    Israeli are the most foolish people who are fighting with those for whom death is nothing. Israeli are coward and they kill innocent children and all public. May Allah guide them towards the right path
    Allahumma Inni A’uzubika Minal-kufr

    Hassan Abu Ali, you’re WELCOME to DIE !
    Then you will meet 1001 virgins on the other side.
    Israeli Army will make everything possible this to happen.

    re David Guy’s comment, Patton is quoted as saying that “no poor bastard wins a war by dying for his country. He wins the war by making the other poor bastard die for his country.” Sadly, this child (the word is used advisedly as one with grandchildren half his age) may never grow up to realise that “death is forever”.

    And I would mourn his death as an innocent who thinks war is a game rather than the bloody mess that it is.

    Worse, they have no conception of what a meat grinder the IDF would be, should they be stupid enough to try to take it on.

  • Harvey

    Who cares what he thinks ? He won’t be around this time next year anyway .

  • Emmanuel Richard Angelakis

    Perhaps it could be a chance to cull them.

    Do they think the IDF is anything like Assad’s forces?

  • Sami

    Oh. I did not know that Palestinians need liberation. From whom? From palestinians?

  • If there is one thing that guarantees the Jihadists defeat it is their desire to die in battle. The best soldier protects himself and his comrades and return to fight over and over.

    The use of children is a sign of weakness and not strength. Like the Nazis towards the end they are forced to enlist the too old and the too young. it is a sign, propaganda to the contrary or not, that there is a manpower shortage.

    It is always difficult to distinguish propaganda from reporting and it maybe that VICE news (what a name!) is being manipulated to transmit propaganda but something in the section dealing with female fighters doesn’t ring true. Look at their weapons and uniforms. They look brand new, crisp, spotless and unmarked. Suggests to me that the women haven’t been fighting but were dressed up for the camera.

    West should always support the under-dog, the losing side at the moment, until these stone-age bastards successfully annihilate each other.

  • Linda Rivera

    British and European ruling elite traitors have heavily colonized Britain and Europe with many millions of Muslims. When Muslim numbers increase even more, the Muslims will wage a monstrous jihad throughout Britain and Europe. Exactly as they are doing in Syria. In obedience to their Quran book of war.

  • Daniel

    He’s only a child…..already been recruited to think like a terrorist rather than a human being. If he makes it out of Syria alive (and I don’t necessary wish him bad) he will quickly learn there’s more than one force on this earth and its not one he knows.

  • Golum

    This story is why we shouldn’t interfere…let the buggers kill each other off!!!

  • art frank

    Need to send these savages to an early grave.

    In case anyone was wondering why obama and kerry really are so anxious to fund arm and assist the jihadists in syria:

  • BuckDePublick

    Best thing is for both groups of rotten Islamofascist Jew-haters to annihilate one another.

  • M.A. Kinamohn

    AH, the wishful thinking of the philistines!

  • Simone Miller

    If there is only one of him, let him die and we will not have to worry about him again.
