DEPRAVED Islamic State militants are torturing children to death in makeshift prisons — even after they have confessed to bogus charges.
Around 20 prisoners managed to escape from an ISIS prison in Syria and have now revealed the murderous extremists are brutally torturing their inmates.
Equipment such as “torture chairs", rods, electric shocks and whips are being used against children to get them to confess to crimes such as helping non-believers and insulting Allah.
Prisoners are even hung from the ceiling by hooks after they have already been sentenced to death.
One escapee said he was found guilty after a trial in the prison and was told he would be executed in a few days.
ISIS fanatics even told him that his crucified body would be publicly displayed in the searing Syrian heat for two days.
The revelations come as 20 prisoners, most of whom had already been sentenced to die, escaped using a jagged piece of metal to scrape a hole in their cell wall.
One survivor, who wishes to remain anonymous, said there were around 40 women in the prison, many of whom were with their children.
He said: "'They [children] are being tortured just like men, and some of them died under torture.
"The prison has special rooms for 'Al-Balanko' which is a hook used to hang detainees so that their tiptoes could hardly touch the floor.
"ISIS confiscates properties of detainees with death sentence.
"There are a variety of charges such as cooperating with apostates, not supporting their state, possessing a weapon and inhibiting the public from obeying The Caliph."
He said the basements of churches, hospitals, schools and office buildings seized by ISIS are used to hold imprisoned Iraqi Army officers and local policemen captured.
Another escapee said: "These people were mostly arrested after ISIS took over Mosul and Tikrit. ISIS lied to them and told them, 'We will give you safety if you give up your weapons,' but then they arrested them.
"Many have been executed, but many are still in these prisons."
