According to the detail, a grisly photograph showing a young boy, said to be the son of an ISIS rebel, holding the severed head of a slain Syrian soldier.
The picture, taken in the northern Syrian city of Raqa, was posted on the Twitter account of Khaled Sharrouf, an Australian citizen who traveled to Syria last year and is now an Islamic State fighter.
As if the photo was not shocking enough, Sharrouf attached the comment “That’s my boy!” to the Twitter image.
The shocking picture quickly went viral.
