Islamic State trains thousands of child soldiers in Syria to fight and become suicide bombers. As young as four, these child soldiers are known as "ashbal" or "lion cubs of the caliphate". They train in special camps where they are subjected to intense brainwashing, witness executions, and are drilled in weapons handling.
