The boy – who says he is 10 years old and goes by the name of Yusuf – claims he is the son of a U.S. veteran who fought in the Iraq War and that he immigrated to Islamic State territory with his mother two years ago, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). His claims could not be independently confirmed.
“My message to Trump, the puppet of the Jews: Allah has promised us victory and promised you defeat,” the boy says in the video. “This battle is not going to end in Raqqa or Mosul; it’s going to end in your lands. By the will of Allah, we will have victory, so get ready for the fighting has just begun.”
