ISIS has reportedly ordered that all babies born with Down Syndrome to be suffocated, according to Mosul Eye. Mosul Eye is claiming that nearly 40 babies born in the area occupied by ISIS have been killed as a result of this policy.
According to Mosul Eye, the Shar’i board of IS issued an “oral fatwa” to its members authorising them to “kill newborn babies with Down syndrome and congenital deformities and disabled children”.
The fatwa, issued by a Saudi judge named as Abu Said Aljazrawi, has already been carried on a baby as young as one week old. Most of these children born with Down syndrome have been the children of foreign fighters.
