The boy was killed by men who are part of Nour Al-Din Al-Zinki, which is a group of Syrian fighters opposed to the ISIS terrorist organization and also opposed to the Syrian Government of the dictator, Bashar Al-Assad. The Al-Zinki group wants to control Syria themselves.
The Al-Zinki group accused the boy of being a spy for a pro-Government rival Palestinian faction.
A video reportedly shows the boy in the back of a pickup truck with a group of men, one of whom cut off the boy's head with a knife. The group has now stated that the beheading was a "mistake".
The Al-Zinki group has received support from the U.S. government because the group is in opposition to ISIS, a common enemy.
We haven't watched this video. We don't want this appalling image of mankind's inhumanity stuck in our minds forever.
The depravity and barbarism of these men, who are seeking control of Syria, is beyond human understanding.
What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?
God help Syria. Amen.
