A distraught mother has relived the horrors of the brutal rule of ISIS and revealed how the terrorist group would ‘knead children to death in bakery machines’.
Alice Assaf said her son was killed ‘because he was called George’ and refused to identify himself by a Muslim name.
Assaf claims ISIS slaughtered Christians in Syria, kneading children to death in bread machines and ‘baking men in ovens’.
She said the terror group targeted her home town in Syria some two years ago, unleashing a horrifying reign of terror as they took hold of the suburb’s population, murdering both adults and children.
Assaf said she pleaded with her son to change his name but he refused and was beaten to death and shot by ISIS terrorists.
She told Roads to Success – an organisation seeking to improve human rights in the Middle East – how the terror unfolded.
Assaf said during the massacre she and her son had sought refuge in the home of a Muslim neighbor, who betrayed them.
‘Later on, we heard that the militants grabbed six strong men working at the bakery and burned them inside the oven,’ she said.
‘After that, they caught some 250 kids and kneaded them like dough in the bakery dough machine.’
She also said when troops attempted to intervene, children as young as four were thrown from the top of balconies in a bid to scare soldiers away.
She also recounted her son’s last words: ‘I don’t want to hide myself. You [Alice] are the one who taught me to follow what Christ said, ‘whoever denies me before men, I will also deny them before Heaven.’
Assaf added: ‘They took him to a backyard to shoot and kill him. They killed him because his name was ‘George’.
While Assaf succeeded in fleeing from the region, her son was buried in a mass grave and she did not know the whereabouts of his body until now.
And while some towns have been liberated from the terror group, residents continue to live in fear.
This week the terror group have suffocated hundreds of people trying to flee Mosul by setting fire to a sulphur plant sending poisonous gas across the city.
Hospitals in Mosul were overwhelmed with patients including children and pregnant women who had inhaled the gas causing breathing problems and choking.
Earlier this week, the terrorists used a bulldozer to dump the corpses in a mass grave at the city’s abandoned College of Agriculture.
All 284 victims, including children, were said to have been shot.
Some of the 550 families taken hostage by ISIS were able to return home while others will continue to be used as human shields by retreating jihadis.
