What the actual story is?

ISIS Shar’ia Board issued a savage (oral fatwa)  to its members authorising them to kill newborn babies with Down’s Syndrome and congenital deformities and disabled children. Information indicates that most of the children born with Down’s Syndrome are those of foreign fighters who married Iraqi, Syrian and Asian women. The activists recorded more than 38 confirmed cases of killing babies with congenital deformities and Down’s Syndrome, aged between one week to three months. They were killed by either lethal injection or suffocation.

If report is true then ISIS has taken a leaf from the Nazis, who murdered disabled children it perceived to be a burden on the state.
