AMMAN (Reuters) – Islamic State militants have abducted at least 150 people from Assyrian Christian villages in northeastern Syria they had raided, Christian Syrian activists said on Tuesday.
A Syrian Christian group representing several NGO’s inside and outside the country said it had verified at least 150 people missing, including women and elderly, who had been kidnapped by the militants.
“We have verified at least 150 people who have been adducted from sources on the ground,” Bassam Ishak, President of the Syriac National Council of Syria, whose family itself is from Hasaka, told Reuters from Amman.
Libyan Army Spokesperson: Libya’s Largest ISIS Camp Just 45km from Tunisia
The biggest ISIS camp is reportedly only 45km away from the Tunisian border, according to Libyan army spokesperson, Ahmed Mesmari in an interview with Tunisian daily newspaper Assarih. Mesmari stated that around three to four thousands militants are training in a camp in Sabratha, most of whom are Tunisians and foreigners connected to other alleged terrorist groups in Tunisia.
Mesmari claimed that the number of Tunisian fighters in Libya have drastically increased in Derna. Six Tunisian suicide bombers killed themselves in Benghazi according to Mesmari, while another Tunisian blew himself up using an ambulance car.
“We have a list of a number of Libyan and Tunisian charity organizations that are supporting ISIS,” and work through social media, Mesmari said. He further added that it was the Libyan army’s willingness that revealed the true nature of these alleged charity organizations to the Tunisian authorities.
Tunisian Foreign Minister Tayeb Baccouche reiterated on Sunday Tunisia’s position of neutrality toward the different Libyan factions, a position which the Libyan army spokesperson expressed respect.
4. Canadian news contrasts Obama and Prime Minister Harper on their diverse approaches to the question of islamic terror. Of course, as its CBC its really just an attack on the Prime Minister where one out of three panelists supporting reality, but not the most sympathetic character. Here is a link to the organization that the muslim on the panel is speaking for. Here is a video of that muslim on the panel from another issue.
5. Yesterday was another day of hearing presentations at the Senate committee on National security. A woman with CAIR-CAN, although she did not present herself as such, gave some pretty numbing presentations using a nice mix of political correctness and victim politics after which she took some questions. The whole thing will be up later for those who can take it, and for Canadians, I recommend you do. But I couldn’t help but post this clip from one senator who obviously sees through the usual hyperbole and laid a few things out on the table. It was refreshing after listening to an hour of the usual taqyyia and one islamophilic senator who couldn’t come up with a question that was not: “How much more money do you need and how can we make sure you get it all and fast enough?”
Thank you M., ML., MK., Richard, Yucki and all. More to come Quite a bit actually.
