ISIS Kidnaps 90 Assyrian Christians From Villages in Syria, Reports Human Rights Group
24/02
2015

Members of ISIS have abducted 90 Assyrian Christians from villages in northeast Syria, activists from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The raids took place in the early morning near the town of Tal Tamr, where a Christian minority lives. Tal Tamr is also located near Hasaka, a city held by the Kurds. ISIS has managed to take two villages from the Kurds on Tuesday, the Syrian Observatory reports, and is the latest in a series of battles between the Kurds and ISIS, which is trying to establish a caliphate, or an Islamic emirate, in the Levant region. The United States has been helping Kurdish forces by conducting air strikes against ISIS, with a recent strike killing 14 ISIS members on Tuesday.
