Muslim terrorist allowed to move back to Sweden after leaving to join ISIS in Syria
A three year old Swedish boy from western Sweden has died in the Islamic State in Syria. Reportedly, the the boy’s mother joined the IS and the child was playing with a grenade when it suddenly exploded.
In 2015, a West Swedish woman decided to move from Sweden with their children to Islamic state in Syria. The pictures on her Facebook, which SVT News West has noted, shows her three year old son posing with guns. This is the first reported case where a Swedish child has died in the Islamic State in Syria.
These are not unusual images in the Islamic state. Instead of taking pictures of their young children with toys, they allow their children to pose in soldier clothes with weapons, both real and toy guns.
These weapons, including Kalashnikovs and grenades, are meant to be used to defend the family and the area you live in.
Saw his brother die
And it was in the family home as the three-year-west Swedish boy found a grenade. He started playing with it and it exploded. One older sibling of the three-year old boy saw his brother die and was injured himself by shrapnel when it happened.
Islamic State is classified today as the world’s most dangerous terrorist organization. Today, according to the Swedish Security Police, there are approximately 120 Swedish men and women in the IS. Many of those who have gone there have taken their children with them and many have given birth there. A rough estimate shows that there are at least 60 Swedish children with IS. Probably more.
Life in the Islamic state is essentially about making armed jihad to fight and die for Allah and the children are introduced at a very early age into the armed struggle.
They have weapons training. It’s like a profession for the children, that is introduced first as a ‘game.’ Then, the game gets more serious as the child gets older. There are also training camps, says Betty Byvald, who is a social worker and the former committee secretary of the National Coordinator against extremism.
Back in Sweden
Numerous videos, published on the Internet, show how children are forced to endure blows, kicks and how to murder people with a firearm or knife, who have a worldview that differs from the Islamic State.
Thousands of children have died in the bloody civil war that has lasted for five years. This is the first known death in which a Swedish child whose parents have joined the Islamic State has died. SVT News West has been in contact with the Foreign Ministry to receive a ‘confirmation of the death,’ but without success.
We do not have this information. The situation in Syria makes the deaths that occur in the country very difficult to confirm, says Jessica Garpvall, the press officer at the Foreign Ministry.
After the boy died the family fled from the Islamic State. They are now back in Sweden again.
