Australian baby EXECUTED by ISIS ‘in revenge’ after father tried to flee bloody conflict zone
An Australian baby has been executed by ISIS after its dad tried to flee the bloody Middle-Eastern conflict zone, reports say.
It is understood that the killing was an act of revenge, after the father made contact with Australian authorities to try and escape the war in Syria and Iraq.
The baby’s name, gender, or how it was killed remains unknown.
Attorney-General George Brandis condemned any parent who put their family in danger in Islamic State territory, the Daily Telegraph reports.
“The government has consistently said going to the conflict zone puts yourself and others in danger,” Mr Brandis’s spokesman said.“We condemn any parent who takes their family to the conflict zone.”
IS confiscates fighters’ passports to stop them trying to leave, but reports say there has been an increase in the number of foreign fighters trying to go back home to Australia.
Australia has been working with the US to tackle the threat of terrorism as it has been difficult for Australia’s intelligence agencies to find accurate and specific information from the war zone.
