MOSUL, Iraq – The Islamic State, also known as ISIS, has started to print books aimed at changing the education system in its self-proclaimed capital of Mosul, residents told Rudaw on Wednesday.
The radical jihadist group has reportedly prepared new books for primary, elementary and high schools as well as for university coursework.
Residents of Mosul who have seen the books said they were designed for the 2015-2016 school year.
“Training children on extremism and violent ideologies under the name of Islam can be much more dangerous than the current ISIS war,” said Jamal Kocher, a parliamentarian with the Kurdistan Islamic Union, on Wednesday.
Kocher has urged the Iraqi government and international community to be vigilant against the threat of indoctrinating a new generation.
