ISIS through their pro-media released a 30-minute video footage where they threatened to attack China using child soldiers from Uighur Muslim minority.
ISIS fighters from China who mainly comes from Uighur Muslim minority vowed to return home and ‘shed blood like rivers’. This is the first threat against China from ISIS terrorist group.
In a 30-minute video, purportedly released by the jihadists on Monday 27 February,2017, it shows Uighur fighters, including heavily armed children training readying for the attack.
The footage also shows senior ISIS figures giving them speeches, praying and killing other ‘informants’. The location is not disclosed by its thought to be in an ISIS-controlled area of Syria or Iraq.
China has long been accused of trying to suppress the ethnic Uighurs, who are based in the far west semi-autonomous region of Xinjiang with hundred reportedly being killed in the past years after unrests with ethnic majority Han Chinese.
According to a translation obtained from the SITE intelligence group, one jihadi says before murdering a prisoner: "Oh, you Chinese who do not understand what people say.
"We are the soldiers of the Caliphate, and we will come to you to clarify to you with the tongues of our weapons, to shed blood like rivers and avenging the oppressed."
The assailant then slits the throat of his victim who is hanging from the ceiling in an orange jumpsuit — in full view of a young boy.
