- Iraqi troops had to be that their calmest to disarm a suicide vest worn by a 7-year-old
- A video which has circulated online showed the child in a Chelsea kit bearing Hazard
- The chap was sent by his uncle who is alleged to be a member of the terrorist group ISIS
A shocking video has emerged online showing Iraqi forces disarming a suicide vest worn by a 7-year-old boy.
According to reports, the child was seized outside the war-torn Iraqi city of Mosul after hiding among families fleeing ISIS wearing a Chelsea kit bearing Eden Hazard's name.
In the two minutes long video, a soldier can be seen gently lifting up the child's Chelsea kit to disarm the bomb.
The video captured outside Mosul was released on LiveLeak and it was filmed on March 18 as said by the soldier in the video.
A caption with the footage, released on LiveLeak, claims that the boy is the youngest ever child suicide bomber - however this has not been verified.
The soldier helping to disarm the bomb says the child called Uday was sent by ISIS, NAIJ.com has learnt.
The child, in turn says he was sent by 'Amo', which means uncle, with instructions to target 'the army'.
In disarming the child, the soldier slowly snips off bandages holding up the device, which appears to include a mobile phone and batteries.
When the child flinches, the soldier says: 'Don't be afraid'.
The harrowing video emerged as Iraqi government forces attempted to evacuate civilians from Mosul's ISIS-held Old City on Tuesday, March 21.
