” More than prisoners have been slaughtered by Islamic State militants near Mosul in Iraq. According to the Yazidi Progress Party, hundreds were murdered by Isis on Friday in the Tal Afar district.
It comes after around 40,000 people were kidnapped at gunpoint when the terrorists attacked Yazidi villages last summer. The party statement, quoted by Shafaq News, condemned the ‘heinous criminal acts’ committed by Isis against the Yazidis.
Meanwhile, a Yazidi lawmaker quoted a lower number of victims today, and said they were shot at a prison camp in Tal Afar. Legislator Mahma Khalil said he spoke to four different people with knowledge of what happened inside the camp.
‘ The militants want to spread horror among them to force them to convert to Islam or to do something else,’ he said.”
