ISIS has released another one of its hallmark videos, this time showing the execution of an alleged Israeli Mossad agent by a child terrorist.
The Islamic State (ISIS) terror organization released a clip on Tuesday showing the execution of an Israeli Arab by a young ISIS terrorist. ISIS claims the man was a spy working for the Mossad, Israel’s national intelligence agency.
The victim, Mohamed Musallam, 19, from Jerusalem, was arrested by ISIS in February.
Security officials did not confirm the authenticity of the execution portrayed in the video.
Dressed in the trademark orange jumpsuit that has become the standard uniform for those executed by ISIS, he is seen kneeling in front of a young boy, who looks to be about 12 years old.
A man standing beside the boy addresses the camera in French, threatening the Jews of France.
“Oh Jews, indeed Allah has gifted us with killing your followers in your own stronghold in France,” he says, referring to the terror attack at the Hyper Cacher market in Paris in January, in which a Muslim terrorist murdered four Jews.
“As for here in the Islamic State, here are the young lions of the Khilafah [Islamic caliphate]” the terrorist continues, referring to the children that the jihadists train to become the next generation of terrorists. “They will kill the one sent by the foolish Mossad to spy on the secrets of the mujahieen [jihadists] and the Muslims.
“As for the near term, you will see the caliphate pounding on your lands and on your fortresses. They will liberate Jerusalem from your filth, by Allah’s permission. Today we say to you the Islamic conquests have begun and the Jews have become frightened because the promise is near,” he says, urging ISIS followers to attack alleged Mossad agents.
The 13-minute clip exposes several other Arabs whom ISIS claims are Mossad agents.
“We’ve revealed to you some of the names and pictures of the spies in Jerusalem and so make those who recruited them see their blood flow,” he states.
The boy then shoots Muslam in the head, shouting Allahu Akbar (“God is great” in Arabic) and then shoots him four more times as he lies on the ground.
Another child trained by ISIS executed two men charged with spying for Russia in January.
Mossad Agent or Foolish Youth?
ISIS published in its Dabiq Magazine in February that Musallam was a Mossad agent sent by Israel to spy on them.
“He came to me one day and asked if I want to work for the Israeli intelligence,” Musallam was quoted as saying “I told him that I would think about his offer.”
One of Musallam’s commanders purportedly noticed unusual behavior and suspected him of espionage. Musallam then asked to go home, fearing he had been exposed, but was told that “it’s too late now” and then arrested, the magazine reports.
Speaking to Israel’s IDF Radio Wednesday morning after the release of the clip, Musallam’s father denied that his son was a Mossad agent, saying that he was initially interested in fighting with ISIS but then got cold feet and tried to escape.
Musallam had abandoned national service with the fire department in order to join the terror organization in Syria, as did several other young Israeli Arabs in recent months.
According to an AFP report, soon after his departure from Israel, Musallam told his brother that he had left to join ISIS. Musallam later contacted the family online from Raqqa in northern Syria, saying he wanted to return home.
“I saw him with a long beard and long hair and a Kalashnikov,” his father told AFP. “He told me, ‘Look dad, I am fed up here, it is a country of war, and I want to come back.’”
More than a month ago, the family received a call from an unidentified person who said that Musallam had fled ISIS, was caught at a Turkish checkpoint and imprisoned by the terror group.
“They did not want to let him leave because if he comes back, he might be caught by the Israelis and tell them what he had seen. So they wanted to get rid of him,” the father said. “I know my son. I raised him well. I am sure he’s not working for the Mossad.”
