ISIS Takes 220 From Christian Villages [VIDEO]

Islamic State militants have kidnapped at least 220 people from Assyrian Christian villages in Syria, according to the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The abductions occurred over the past three days as ISIS seized 10 villages near the city of Hasaka, which is mostly inhabited by Kurds. β€œISIS now controls 10 Christian villages,” Observatory chief Rami Abdulrahman said. β€œThey have taken the people they kidnapped away from the villages and into their territory.” ISIS has not claimed any of the attacks, but last week Islamic State militants posted a video online showing the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya.
