Who is worse? Iran’s mullahs or Daesh (ISIS) operatives? The municipality of Mashhad in northeastern Iran has established a children’s combat training program under the pretext of “The Playground of Koran and Resistance” aimed at preparing children for future wars. This is exactly what Daesh is doing in Iraq and Syria by recruiting children as soldiers.

The official Mashhad municipality website has launched this program for a few days now aimed at familiarizing children with the concepts of resistance, war, sacred defense, recognizing the enemy, and that there is a war against Saudi Arabia and the United States.

In this training program children wear military uniforms, place headbands of ‘resistance’ groups on their heads and train in groups of 10 to 15 boys. They undergo training in 7 different phases of combat tactics.
