It stated that the application was to be used by ISIS to teach children the Arabic alphabets with the aid of guns, military tanks and cannons.

"The application utilises colourful illustrations that attract and engage the attention of young children," it stated.

It urged members of the public in general and parents in particular to be vigilant and to prevent their children and wards from being indoctrinated.
