Islamic State Slaughters, the World is Silent


Reports Saturday indicate that Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) forces in Iraq have killed 700 members of a tribe in eastern Syria over the last two weeks, and killed hundreds of the Yazidi ethnic minority on Friday and Saturday in massacres in northern Iraq.

The terror group fell upon the Iraqi village of Kocho on Friday, after local Yazidi's refused their ultimatum to convert to Islam or be murdered, according to reports by local Yazidis and Kurds. IS terrorists killed at least 80, taking a number of women and children captive in the process.
