“#IslamicState (#ISIS) uses drowned toddler (Faked) photos to warn #Refugees of the West”

BEIRUT — The jihadist Islamic State group has used the shocking image of drowned Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi to warn refugees against trying to flee to the West, calling it a “major sin.”

Three-year-old Aylan’s body was photographed lying in the sand in Bodrum, Turkey after he drowned in a boat accident while his family tried to reach Greece — an image that helped to focus international attention on the plight of refugees.In the latest issue of its English-language magazine Dabiq, IS published the boy’s image under the headline: “The danger of Abandoning Darul-Islam,” or the land of Islam, including the group’s self-declared “caliphate” in Syria and Iraq.”
