War crimes and crimes against humanity by ISIS
ISIS war crimes as well as crimes against humanity continue to grow. There has been report of ISIS carrying out genocide on the Yaziid people in Iraq. A report has been published from the Human Rights office that gives details of the horror that these people are going through. Killings, torture, rape, and sex slavery is ramped in the towns that are being taken over. The report that came out is based off of interview of 100+ witnesses and survivors of these awful attacks. Systematic and organized attacks are place on the Yazidi people. The men and boys over the age of 14 are taken an executed while the younger ones are sent to become child soldiers. Women and girls are raped and or sold to the sex slave business. Boys are forced to convert to Islam and are taught to be soldiers, watching videos of executions. The Yazidi people were not given choices like the Christians who got overrun got. In other places people were given the choice to convert, pay a tax, or leave. Here they we just picked up and marched off to be executed.
The inhumanity that is taking place in these towns that are being taken over by ISIS is horrific. There is testimony from witnesses and victims that confirm that there are foreign fighters from many different countries within ISIS. One witness apparently described how people were executed and then cadets kicked around the heads of these people like footballs. The Iraqi government has been seeking help from the UN rights office and is trying to assure that there will be accountability for these crimes that are taking place.
