The image above is one of 12 released by an "administrator for the Shumukh al-Islam Network" of "the al-Fateh training camp of the Syria-based Al Nusrah," according to the SITE Intelligence Group. "Eleven of the pictures show fighters marching with their weapons, attending a lecture, and practicing with pistols, and one shows a group of masked children holding rifles and sitting while another child reads from a piece of paper," SITE reported.

Al Nusrah is allied with al Qaeda and has conducted at least 31 of the 38 suicide attacks in Syria reported since the end of December 2011. For more on the Syrian terror group, see LWJ report, Al Nusrah Front commanded Free Syrian Army unit, 'Chechen emigrants,' in assault on Syrian air defense base.
