Yazidi children in Iraq


by, Rudaw | h/t Trop

DUHOK, Kurdistan Region—Militants of the Islamic State (IS/ISIS) raided the Yazidi village of Kucho, killing 80 men and taking a number of women and children hostage after a deadline to convert to Islam expired on Friday, villagers said.

According to Rudaw sources, ISIS gave the residents of Kucho a deadline to convert to Islam or face consequences. The deadline expired today.

Kucho is located 80 kilometers southeast of Shingal where thousands of Yazidis fled and took refuge on a nearby mountain as the town fell to the IS earlier this month.

Local Yazidi sources said that a large force of IS militants arriving on buses attacked the village, rounded up 1,200 people and hauled them into the school village.

The spokesman for the Yazidi Spiritual Community, Karim Suleiman confirmed the the massacre by the IS, saying, “One of the men in the village escaped the IS injured.”

Scores of Yazidi villagers were killed during the initial IS attack on their region earlier this month and hundreds more, mostly women and young girls are still missing.

The women are believed to have been held in Mosul, Iraq’s ISIS stronghold.

The United Nations, US, EU and human rights organizations have strongly condemned the violent ISIS attacks on the Yazidi religious minority.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington
