Yesterday, the vile mastermind was named as Belgian Abdelhamid Abaaoud, one of ISIS’ top executioners and now among the world’s most wanted war criminals. The 27-year-old is believed to have persuaded thousands of young jihadis to come to Syria, including his 13-year-old brother Younes, ISIS’ youngest fanatic.
In chilling video footage, Abaaoud is seen driving a pick-up truck with a mound of bloody corpses in tow. One of his accomplices sits perched on the back, while another can be heard complaining about the smell. The ISIS extremists are seen smiling and joking as the bodies are driven towards what appears to be a mass grave, where they are thought to have been dumped.
In what is believed to be a reference to what pick-up trucks are commonly used for in the West, Abaaoud is heard saying how instead of towing jet skis and motorcycles he and his fellow ISIS fighters are dragging the ‘infidels who are fighting us’.
Abaaoud has been fighting in Syria for several years and even recruited his own 13-year-old brother Younes, pictured, who was believed to be ISIS’ youngest fanatic
