ISIS Abducts 150 Christians In Syrian Attack

Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL) terrorists abducted 150 Assyrian Christians on Tuesday from the villages of Tal Shamiram and Tal Hermz in Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reports. Initial reports had the number at 70. They were kidnapped after the terrorist organization seized two Assyrian villages from Kurdish forces during heavy fighting for control of the region. The US condemned the abduction, calling for the immediate and unconditional release of the captives. “ISIL’s latest targeting of a religious minority is only further testament to its brutal and inhumane treatment of all those who disagree with its divisive goals and toxic beliefs,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki stated.
