Some families together with their children have left the country to join the ranks of Isis, reported Ilta-Sanomat, a Finnish language tabloid.
 
According to the security police (Supo), entire families including very small children have left Finland to join the extremist organisation.
 
The aim is to raise a new generation of jihadis, said a representative of Supo to the tabloid. 
 
The Ilta-Sanomat, however, did not specify how many have left to join Isis.
 
A few weeks ago, Supo said about 70 people had left the country for Syria, of whom 15 were killed and about a dozen came back.
 
The topic of children from Europe joining Isis has been in the headlines following the terrorist attack in Paris.
 
Quoting the British newspaper Daily News, the Ilta-Sanomat reported that the mastermind of the Paris attacks, 27-year-old Abdelhamid Abaaoud took his little brother, 13-year-old Younes, to Syria alongside Isis last year.
