Syria conflict: Boy beheaded by rebels ‘was not fighter

A Palestinian boy who was filmed being beheaded by Syrian rebels on Tuesday was not a fighter, a pro-government Palestinian militia has said.

The Liwa al-Quds (Jerusalem Brigade) said Abdullah Issa was just a 12-year-old from a poor refugee family who lived in a rebel-held area of Aleppo.

Members of the Nour al-Din al-Zinki Movement are accused of killing him.

It said those responsible were handed over to a judicial committee, and denounced the killing as a “violation”.

“If we can prove that this was indeed what happened and this group was involved… it would give us pause about any assistance or, frankly, any further involvement with this group,” state department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters. BBC
