The Taliban are using children to prepare their weapons, carrying their ammunition in the battlefield, and also and primarily as spies, according to research by Britain’s Sky News and released Thursday.(…)
The television found on the ground in Helmand, where is deployed the bulk of the British contingent in Afghanistan, how children are studying the tactics of clearance of foreign forces and then pass the information on the methods used by the insurgent group, which turn adapted their bombs to avoid detection and cause a larger number of casualties.
Also, children are the ones who are reporting on troop movements and patrols to the Taliban to carry out attacks with maximum impact.
This was the same TV program in which a Taliban leader said UK Muslim brothers were funding them.
