Beirut - A video posted online by Islamic
State militants on Tuesday showed a child killing Muhammad Musallam, an Israeli
Arab accused by the group of being a Mossad spy, with a bullet to the head.
The video, published by the group's Furqan
media outlet, showed Musallam sitting in a room wearing an orange jumpsuit,
talking about how he had been recruited and trained by the Israeli intelligence
service. He said his father and elder brother had encouraged him.
After that, it showed Musallam being
escorted to a field and executed by a child, described by an older,
French-speaking fighter as one of "cubs of the caliphate".
Reuters could not immediately verify the
authenticity of the footage, which also appeared on Twitter feeds used by
Islamic State supporters.
Israeli security officials said they were
aware of the video but could not confirm that it was authentic.
