Latest video from Isis shows young children play dramatic maze game and execute prisoners

A new video reportedly released by terror group Islamic State shows children executing alleged spies.

The short film shows young boy jihadists racing through an obstacle course of building ruins, before finding a prisoner each.

Five of the 'spies' are shot at close range, while the last is beheaded.

The boys are understood to be all younger than 14 years of age.

The video, entitled, 'To The Sons of Jews' is believed to have been filmed at the al-Rahba castle in 'Wilayat al-Khayr' in Syria, which was known as the Deir ez-Zor Governorate before it was occupied by the terror group.

It begins with images of Israel and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin 'Bibi' Netanyahu. It then cuts to footage of a large group of students studying the Koran outside.

Six students are then dramatically called from the class to partake in the maze race.

Wearing camouflage, they receive instructions and a gun by their militant teachers before they race into the obstacle course.

Five of the boys are filmed carrying out the executions by gunshot, while the sixth is seen setting down the pistol and take a knife out of his pocket.

A video game-style profile picture of each victim is shown as the boys shoot the prisoners.
