A recently released video distributed by a jihadist group captures a smiling boy, estimated to be around the age of 4, taking a knife to his stuffed teddy bear's neck and sawing away at its head, all the while a voice in the background hails his efforts with Islamic cheers.
The boy is introduced in the video as a son of an ISIS fighter, the Blaze reported.

The video opens with the boy standing in front of a large ISIS flag and grasping his white fluffy teddy bear in his left hand. In his right hand is a large knife, which he jams into the side of his bear.
He then cuts back and forth with his blade, working hard to decapitate it, as a man off-camera calls, "Takbirl." The Blaze reported the term is aligned with another Islamic phrase, "Allahu akbar," which translates into Allah is great.
The boy in the video is shown clearly enjoying his work. As the news outlet pointed, this isn't the first video released by ISIS that uses children for public relations' messages. A month ago, the terror group posted a video that showed a young teenager, or pre-teenager, beheading a man introduced as a Syrian Army officer.
