The ‘good guys’ of Syria, according to Western leaders, decapitate 11-year-old boy

The boy is a Palestinian teen named Abdullah Tayseer Al-Issa according to MEMRI, a teen fighter for the Liwa Al Quds.


Reddit offers some more insight into the background of this event:


On the 19th of July Abdullah Tayseer Al Issa was beheaded alive by a member of the Nour Al Dein Al Zenki Brigade, this happened under the supervision of Omar Salkhu and Mohammad Ma’yuf who are the two Aleppo Commanders of Nour Al Dein Al Zenki, along with other members and a small crowd. A video of the event was posted, this video was ther picked up by several twitter outlets and it sparked an outrage, as a result Nour Al Dein Al Zenki released statements condemning the human right abuses , stressing that these were individual errors that did not represent their typical practices. A committee was said to be established to investigate the abuses that were shared online, all the individuals who undertook the violaton have been detained and will be judged on the relevant legal standards. Shortly thereafter the exact circumstances of the beheading and of Abdullah Tayseer Al Issa’s age, health, affiliation and ethnicity were unknown and uncertain, they are still disputed now.

Rebel point of view:

Abdullah Tayseer Al Issa was not 12 years old but was 19 years old, as claimed by his cousin on Facebook, he looked this young because he suffered of Thalassemia. This also explains the IV that he was seen having when he was beheaded, he also had a broken leg. This was substantiated with a picture of the ID of Abdullah Tayseer Al Issa, along with martyrdom photo with Hafez in the background. The ID states that he is born in Homs in 1997, his rifle type is Russian (AK-47) and he is a member of the Syrian Arab Army, thus Nour Al Dein Al Zenki did not behead a child at all but an adult. They do acknowledge the event and will detain the guilty individuals as promised. He was captured following the recent offensive by Liwa Al-Quds in the Handarat camp, he was then given an IV and pulled back out to be beheaded by Matin Abo Ahmad who had lost his brother in the recent fighting with Liwa Al-Quds. Nour Al Dein Al zenki did not receive any aid anymore since last month and thus it is not an US backed rebel group.

Problems with this explanation:

  1. The name of the cousin is Loly Alamora, this means beautiful Loly and is usually used to catfish other people, the account has also been removed from Facebook thus far. The profile picture is also not distinct, furthermore little additional information is given.
  2. Someone who suffers from Thalassemia might need constant blood transfusions or he will not be able to survive depending on the intensity of the condition. The illness will also not make someone look seven years younger. It would also be hard for an individual with Thalassemia to carry a gun around and be active, useful on the front lines of a war, especially if his specialization are Russian weapons. He is also pictured with a PKM on his martyr picture (ID states rifle, not gun, this weighs around 18 kg and would be extremely hard to carry around for Abdullah Tayseer Al Issa if this was correct.
  3. The members of Nour Al Dein Al Zenki claimed that they had captured Abdullah Tayseer Al Issa during the last offensive by Liwa Al-Quds on Handarat camp. However no advances were claimed by Liwa Al-Quds that day, the offensive was very effectively repelled by Nour Al Dein Al Zenki. Tayseer Al Issa was captured inside a building after having been left behind, the commander of the group is also suspected to be Ahmed Nassif who was martyred the 13th of July meaning that he was already in rebel custody for at least a month, though this being Ahmed Nassif is not confirmed.
  4. The legitimacy of the ID is very questionable, not only does the picture show an even younger Abdullah Tayseer Al Issa but it also looks as if the picture of the ID has been manipulated. The ID shows multiple puncture holes (photos are usually clipped, not glued), the stamp should normally be put above the photo, after which a plastic filament is added to the ID to keep it sturdy.
  5. The origin of the martyrdom photo with Hafez in the background is unknown, it uses another image of Abdullah Tayseer Al Issa and is directly photoshopped on the poster. Furthermore it is not uncommon for teenagers or kids to pose in armed gear and with a weapon to show off, this does not mean they are affiliated with a group. He is also pictured with a light machine gun, yet his ID states rifle.
  6. Nour Al Dein Al Zenki knew they were beheading a child, as they stated in the aforementioned videos, this would mean that they had no knowledge of the ID of Abdullah Tayseer Al Issa despite having captured him themselves in the Handarat camp the same day. They also carried out this act with the blessing of the two head of operations for the Aleppo OP Room, this puts to question the fact that all individuals involved will be detained.
  7. Charles Lister claimed that Nour Al Dein Al Zenki did not receive any US aid anymore since September*, however the State Department Spokesman said that “give us pause about any assistance or, frankly, any further involvement with this group.” when asked: “Is this the kind of thing that would affect assistance, U.S. assistance to this specific group but also just in general to the FSA?” this implies that the group still receives US aid to this day.

If there are any other details that are off with this version of these events, please let me know.

Government point of view:

Abdullah Tayseer Al Issa was a 12 year old Palestinian child from Aleppo that was picked up at random by Nour Al Dein Al Zenki, he lived there with is family, which is a poor area called Al Mashhad controlled by the rebels. He was slaughtered in a gruesome manner under the pretext that he was a fighter in Liwa Al Quds. The only crime this child committed was being Palestinian and he was slaughtered by the brother of a martyred Nour Al Dein Al Zenki member. He was also not a fighter at all and not a member of Liwa Al-Quds.

Problems with this explanation:

  1. People from his community have come out to dispute the claim that he was Palestinian and from Aleppo, stating that he was instead from Homs and that it was dishonest to manipulate information, they also showcase a different martyrdom picture that is displayed in public.
  2. He was captured in a building on the front lines in Handarat camp by Nour Al Dein Al Zenki as showcased in this video. Thus he was a fighter at one point, though it is possible that he was being treated for his injuries and had been taken in custody, this would explain him being pictured in civilian clothes.
  3. Liwa Al Quds claimed that they had no involvement with Abdullah Tayseer Al Issa, yet when he is captured he is pictured with a red armband, this is usually worn by the Liwa Al-Quds militia and rarely worn by government forces, although the headband is more usual.

If there are any other details that are off with this version of these events, please let me know.

Most of these arguments are intertwined, for example if he was indeed a Liwa Al Quds member as stated by Nour Al Dein Al Zenki then the ID is not correct as Liwa Al Quds is a Palestinian militia group or that he was captured that day yet shown with a bandage in really good state and changed clothes.

My point of view:

Abdullah Tayseer Al Issa was a kid that was enrolled in Liwa Al Quds as a relative of a Palestinian and taken to the front lines, he was indeed under 14 years old and captured by Nour Al Dein Al Zenki. They stated not to hurt the child during the capture and they did just that, took care of him and healed his leg, explaining the bandages and the IV, he could have had another illness though. A month later he was taken out of the place he was being held and beheaded by the brother of a recently killed fighter. The only problem here is that Liwa Al-Quds would most likely not deny this kids martyrdom, so I am not 100% sure about my own point of view.

Use your critical mind, no-one is 100% right and there are nuances everywhere, rushing to conclusions isn’t productive.

And these are the ‘good guys’! Sickening video shows US-backed Syrian rebels taunting and then brutally beheading a young boy because he was a ‘spy’

  • Nour al-Din al-Zenki thug decapitates boy accused of being a child soldier
  • Boy was arrested for being a spy for government-supporting group al-Quds
  • Fighters laugh and joke before beheading the boy in the back of an SUV
  • Executioner shouts ‘Allahu Akbar’ meaning ‘God is great’ after killing child 


Fighters from a US-backed Syrian militant group have been filmed brutally beheading a child as young as 11.

The video captures Nour al-Din al-Zenki fighters in the back of a truck with a child they claim is an al-Quds soldier supporting Assad’s Syrian forces.

One of the fighters shouts ‘Allahu Akbar’ meaning ‘God is great’ after taking a small knife to the boy’s throat and cutting off his head in the Palesinian refugee Handarat Camp in Northern Aleppo.

The child, who is clearly under the age of 12, was arrested by the Islamist militants for allegedly being Palestinian Liwaa Al Quds, al-Quds Brigade fighter, according to Russia News Now.

Sickening footage shot immediately before the boy is slaughtered shows him in ragged clothes surrounded by bearded militants in the back of a pick-up truck.

One of them holds him by the hair and slaps him in the face.

Judging by his ragged clothes and the marks on his arms, it appears the boy was impoverished and may have been tortured before he was murdered in the video, seen by MailOnline.

The boy is placed face-down in the back of the truck with his arms tied behind his back when the executioner is handed a small knife by a fellow fighter.

He then cuts the boy’s throat before shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ and holds his head aloft.

Before the video ends, he places the head on the boy’s back before jumping down from the SUV.

Liwaa Al Quds is a pro-Syrian government Palestinian paramilitary faction made up of the Palestinians who have been driven out of their homes in the Handarat Camp once Islamist militants took over the neighbourhood.

Today, the group is fighting alongside the Syrian Army to retake the camp.

Nour al-Din al-Zenki is part of the Levant Front, and its allies the Islamic Front and the Free Syrian Army are fighting to overthrow the Assad regime.

It is also battling ISIS and the U.S government supplied the group with money and anti-tank missiles.


Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki is an Islamist rebel group in Syria formed in late 2011 during the Syrian Civil War.

Named for Emir of Aleppo Nur ad-Din, the movement was formed in Aleppo to fight against the Syrian Arab Army, and it joined the Army of Mujahideen in the war against the Islamic State.

The United States supplied the group with money and BGM-71 TOW anti-tank missiles during its war against ISIS and the government.

In December 2014, it joined the Levant Front and also the Fatah Halab operations room.

  1. sorry brother i m a Muslim….. You are looking too much anoid from islam…. Am i right??? Ok cool down by God these are not teachings of islam… These f**kings just using the name of islam…. Islam is the name of Peace realy i love all humen beings….love u toi


  2. There is a very nasty war in Syria, Iraq, libya and yemen, also recently south Sudan. Let’s focus on this region, the middle east in general and these countries specifically are rich in natural resources like gas, petroleum amongst other things, it is a war of greed and different nations are involved in this war and there’s lots of militias and foreign armies, they are using religion and controversies in their war to confuse people and legitimize their war, people think these atrocities are because Arabs are a very barbaric people, people think it is perhaps because their religion is telling them to be like that, but the truth it is nothing related to race or religion but rather as mentioned before a very dirty war, some of you think that Islam teaches hate towards different religions and atheist people and killing of gays and lesbians but it is not like that at all, Islam teaches love and spreading of peace and it teaches understanding of those different and teaches not to judge people as judgment is only left to the ultimate judge which is God the one and only according to the Muslim believes. My advice is to try understanding why this is happening, try to read more and seek knowledge more, you could even ask muslims themselves about what they think about what’s going on and about what their religion is saying about certain matters or whatever questions you might have, lets seek answers and not prejudge


    • Wait a minute – that’s not the same boy. Where did all the hair come from? The skin color doesn’t match, nor does the face.

      ISIS is doing terrible things but please look at the photos more carefully.


      • You can always search the original video where they decapitate him if you enjoy that. We can assure you it’s the same boy (Palestinian teen Abdullah Tayseer Al-Issa). He was decpaitated one month after he was captured.


  3. Every IslamicSupremacist must be captured, pinned and cuffed, have their mouths stuffed with bacon – then duct taped, sodomized by multiple animals and instraments and THEN, slowly, and with rusted pocket knives, beheaded and filmed with heads spiked on top of crosses.

    Seems fair.

  5. All of you…Can’t u see what’s wrong with the pictures??? U don’t have to be a CSI agent to see that. 😉😂


  6. I do believe IS ASHOLES can kill their mother and sell her soul without blinking… What a f**k can’t you see this is bull shit??? You don’t have to be a CSI to noteis what’s wrong in the pictures…or I should really work as a CSI because I’m soo good at it…even a 10 year old can say what’s wrong with the pictures…Just saying 😉


  7. Interesting how the IV tube in the boys arm changes from his left to his right in the photo sequence… just saying pretty interesting.


  8. You must be a special kind of beast to behead a 11 year old, islam is the worst as it doesn’t even spare children and babies. I mean they follow a role model who at the age of 54 took a 6 year old as his wife-tahst pedophilia for you and me but its a marriage for muslims-thats how fucked up they are!


  9. That is simply the agenda of the US and its allies. America has really degraded their credibility in the world by supporting this group. May God punish the perpetrators


  10. And this is where the birth of civilization took place. I think we would all be better off if we moved back in to caves and used clubs and sticks to murder each other


  11. It is total disgrace to see western powers backing terrorist groups against the established government of a sovereign state. They have thrown their principles out the door, and at the same time have surrendered the moral high ground forever. Don’t the Americans ever learn? Every time they back rebel fighter groups, it comes back to haunt them in the future. Think about the origins of the Taliban.


    • They will never learn. This is a terrorist group of the future; as you rightly say look at the Taliban.
      All westerners should withdraw from arab lands and return once they have slaughtered each other.
