Graphic closeup footage of their bodies is also shown.

The vile clip is understood to have been filmed in Yemen, the southernmost country in the Arabian Peninsula, where ISIS is looking to take advantage of a civil war that started in 2015.

The terror group is trying to expand its territories into the war-torn country while two rival government factions are battling each other for power of the oil-rich state.

The video also shows a Dutch student, known only as Mazen, carrying out a suicide bombing near the country’s presidential palace in the capital Sana'a.

Calling himself Abu Hanifa al-Holandi, the student is understood to have told his family in Holland that he was studying Arabic in Yemen.

The boy’s bereaved father, who said he didn’t know his son had joined ISIS, spoke of his anguish after seeing his son's death.

“When it happened, his friends all came here. They didn't believe it either.”
