A sickening video of five young children 'executing prisoners' for ISIS went viral yesterday, with many concerned that one of the boys was British.
It's now been confirmed that the boy (known as Abu Abdullah Al-Britani in the video) is in fact the 11-year-old son of jihadi Sally Jones.
His father, who has been asked not to be named for his own safety, has not seen his son for three years. Last time he saw him, he was known as 'Jojo'.
He told MailOnline: "He was brilliant, just a normal boy - always chasing bugs, going down the park. I have had to block it out. It's been hard, we just have to carry on. It's disgusting he's been brainwashed."
A friend of the father added: "He was a happy boy, loving, caring, sensitive and a pleasure to be around. I'm angry at Sally for taking an innocent child who doesn't know right or wrong. Children can be easily manipulated.

"He's an innocent party and I want to know what makes a mother put her child in such a dangerous position."
The video (which cuts off before the assassination is completed) shows five young boys stood behind a row of men who appear to have their hands tied behind their backs. The other four kids are apparently from Egypt, Kurdistan, Tunisia and Uzbekistan.
The boys claim that the men are being 'punished for recent Kurdish advances in Syria and Iraq'.
Some people may find the following video distressing.

Jones fled to Syria in 2013 and is believed to be a major recruiter of women in ISIS. She made headlines after it emerged that she was once a 'punk-rocker'. Now we know that she took her son with her.
