Disturbing footage of a child beheading his teddy bear has been released online in what seems to be an ISIS propaganda stunt.

The video, released this week, shows a young boy holding a knife to a stuffed toy before lifting his weapon and shouting a derogatory term used for non-believers of Islam, the UK-based Daily Mail reported Tuesday.

The child appears to be standing in front of an ISIS flag and proceeds to saw the head off the toy in the 30-second video uploaded to YouTube.

It has not been confirmed whether the terror group is responsible for the clip.

In July, a young boy was filmed beheading a man thought to be a Syrian soldier in the Homs province of Syria.

That video was shared by alleged ISIS supporters who praised the child.
