Meet 11-Year-Old Boy Whose Dream Is To Kill The President Of His Country ] PHOTO

Mohammed Afar, the resident of Aleppo area in Syria is 11 years old. The modified Kalashnikov assault rifle he carries stretches to more than half of his height.
Over the top of his faded yellow jacket a Free Syrian Army (FSA) vest holds three extra clips, each full with live ammunition, and a walkie-talkie. An FSA badge sits on one side and a rendering of the Islamic Shahada, in Arabic calligraphy, on the other.

He says he does not miss school or want to stay at home with his mother and two sisters.
“I want to stay as a fighter until Bashar is killed,” he says, referring to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The fighters surrounding him, all claiming to be from Liwa al-Tawhid, pass him a sniper rifle and offer to take him to a frontline, so he can demonstrate his shooting.

The father of the boy, Mohammed Saleh Afar refers to his son as “ great shot” and “a little lion.”
Over the course of its grinding 21-month insurgency, Syria’s children have endured numerous abuses.

Caught-up in shelling, airstrikes, and sniping, they have additionally been subject to arbitrary arrest, torture and rape, as reported by the United Nations Commission of Inquiry on Syria in August; which, additionally, noted “with concern reports that children under 18 are fighting and performing auxiliary roles for anti-Government armed groups.”

Both the Geneva Conventions and the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Children carry provisions that call for not using combatants under the age of 15, while the International Criminal Court’s Rome Statute makes it a war crime.

Mohammed quickly disengages his magazine and presents it, before skillfully reinserting it, but not chambering a round. The older fighters surrounding him – some of whom are little more than boys themselves – praise his speed and mirror his father’s earlier statements, calling him a “good shot.”

  1. Please allow him to proceed after all David did it to Goliath.

  2. President Bashar is the main cause of the fracas ,and unless he dies or arrested and imprisoned in the Netherlands there is not going to be peace in Syria.

    How can he be so political to have accuse US of supporting the rebels if he strike

    When some months ago US shut down all her Embassies in Arab countries because of terrorist's threat globally.

    If that boy didn't make it,US ,UN ,and the world will never let him go because he committed crime against humanity by using chemical weapon to attack his own citizen.
