In a new propaganda stunt, a new video released the Islamic State features a little boy speaking English. In the video, the boy, who is clearly reading a script, threatens U.S. President Donald Trump.

"My message to Trump, the puppet of the Jews, Allah has promised us victory and promised you defeat."

According to American media, the boy, reportedly aged 10, is the son of a U.S. soldier serving in Iraq whose mother is Syrian and who returned to the country after living in the U.S. for the past two years.

"The battle is not going to end in Raqqa or Mosul, its going in your lands. By the will of Allah, we will have victory, so get ready for the fighting has just begun," the boy is seen saying in the video, which comes as the group loses ground both in Syria and Iraq.

The group was pushed out of Mosul in Iraq over the summer and is currently losing its grip on the Syrian city of Raqqa.

The Islamic State group jihadists have lost swathes of Syrian territory to separate campaigns being waged by government forces backed by Russia and Iran, and by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, which is dominated by the Kurdish YPG militia. The SDF is currently focused on capturing Raqqa city from Islamic State.

The Islamic State group still controls nearly all of Deir al-Zor province, which is bordered to the east by Iraq. The Syrian government holds a pocket of territory in Deir al-Zor city and a nearby military base.
