As Iraqi forces continue sweeping the rubble of Mosul’s Old City after forcing out Islamic State, soldiers discovered and rescued a baby boy from under the rubble, according to this footage shared on July 24. The boy was described as the son of an Islamic State member from China. However, men in the video said that the boy was Tajik. Storyful was unable to verify either of these claims. The uploader, ‎"AbuAli Zubaidi":, said that the boy was taken to a nearby hospital. People from China and Tajikistan have joined Islamic State and a number of Tajiks over the past year have carried out suicide attacks in Syria and Iraq, according to reports.
