ISIS propaganda chiefs have released chilling footage of a fresh-faced child suicide bomber blowing himself up in the desert.
Stills taken from a video show the lad – in his mid-teens – behind the wheel of a vehicle packed with explosives.
A twisted adult jihadi appears to show him how to operate the death-dealing motor.
Footage from a drone reveals several Syrian military vehicles dug into a position in the sand before the attack.
A huge mushroom cloud can then be seen over the outpost as the suicide bomber detonates his lethal payload close to the city of Deir Ezzor.
The youngster betrays no emotion in the photos taken just moments before he met his death.
The vile terror group is known to drug fighters up with the tranquiliser Zolam which it seized from hospitals so they do not back out of the deadly missions.
Another teen suicide bomber who was captured by Kurdish forces before he could detonate his bomb previously revealed the use of the anti-anxiety drug.
He said: “That drug makes your mind not your own.
“If they give you a suicide belt and tell you to blow yourself up, you’ll do it.”
ISIS is now known to be so short of fighters that the group is using kids, the elderly and disabled to bolster its numbers.
