A 7-year-old Syrian Muslim girl wandered into a Damascus police station all alone. When cops noticed what was under her coat, it was too late. The girl had blown herself up, taking the police station with her.
As if the United States needs more evidence as to why allowing Syrian refugees, even children, enter the country is dangerous, Syrian police say cases like this are on the rise.
ISIS terrorists often kidnap young children and strap bombs to them. The children are then sent to police stations, army barracks, and other public places. This is a common tactic that was used on American soldiers during the bloodiest parts of the war in Afghanistan.
The police station was reduced to rubble, as footage taken at the scene following the explosion reveals.
According to the Daily Mail, explosions in the city of Damascus are rare, though rebel groups have occasionally fired rockets and mortar rounds.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights say that they received reports that “one woman” was killed in the police station explosion, but it has not been confirmed whether the woman was a bystander or the suicide bomber.
It has yet to be confirmed how many casualties resulted from the blast.
According to Metro, the bombing may be related to a video in which jihadi parents are seen kissing their two daughters goodbye before sending one on a suicide mission. Syrian journalists reported that one of the girls in the video may have been sent to the police station in Damascus.
The horrific bombing comes as thousands of children are being killed by President Bashar al-Assad’s forces moving into the besieged city of Aleppo.
