“Activist: ISIS holds 150 Assyrian hostages in Syria, will threaten to kill them” Reply


CNN

By John Vause and Laura Smith-Spark, CNN

(CNN)ISIS is holding 150 Assyrian Christians hostage and is expected to release a message Wednesday threatening to kill them, Usama Edward, founder of the Assyrian Human Rights Network, told CNN.

The video message will be directed to U.S. President Barack Obama and other members of the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS, Edward said, citing the latest information from the network’s team on the ground.

The Assyrians were kidnapped from villages near Tal Tamer in northeastern Syria early Tuesday. Initial estimates put the number seized at between 70 and 100 people.

Edward said the latest information indicated the hostages had been moved to an ISIS-controlled location. [FULL QUOTE]

“ISIS Boasted Of These Christians’ Deaths. Here Are The Lives They Lived.”


HUFFINGTON POST

“On Jan. 3 at around 2:30 a.m. in the coastal Libyan city of Sirte, masked gunmen began knocking on doors, according to survivors. They were looking for Christians marked with traditional tattoos on their hands that identified them as Copts, an ancient Christian sect in Egypt. Some men were pulled from their beds at gunpoint. Others hid and prayed, only to later see their captured friends and family members decapitated in a widely circulated and highly produced Islamic State video.

But in this tight-knit village, these men will not be remembered for their brutal murders. They are remembered as beloved husbands, sons, brothers, cousins and friends. In death, their lives are celebrated.” FULL POST
