Man in ISIS video may be linked to 2012 Toulouse killer

The French police are checking the identity of the man seen on an ISIS video alongside the 12-year old boy who shot an Arab Israeli dead Tuesday. They suspect he may be Sabri Essid, a radical Islamist leader, who was close or related to the French jihadi gunman Mohammad Merah, who killed three Jewish students and a teacher in Toulouse in 2012 after shooting dead three French soldiers.
The man in the video spoke French to threaten the Jews of France before the boy walked around in front of the condemned man, Mohammed Islmail Musallem, and shot him in the head with a pistol. Then, shouting Allahu Akbar, the child shot the victim four more times as he lay on the ground.
