Yesterday terrorists from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) massacred 15 Yezidis in the border town of Ras al-Ain. The slaughter took place in Tileliye, a small suburb of Ras al-Ain which is inhabited by members of the religious Yezidi minority. According to information we have received from Kurdish media seven children as well as three women were among the murdered civilians. More bodies are still in the hand of the terrorists, reported ANHA.
At 3 am the Islamists started to launch their plan by invading three villages of Ras al-Ain simultaneously, including Tileliye, Temade and Ovencake. Unconfirmed reports indicate that ISIS terrorists have killed a total number of 40 people.
Once they had entered the villages, they started to open fire on innocent civilians. The shocking images show how cruel and reckless the terrorists were operating. According to relatives of the victims hundreds are currently on the run. In the meantime the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) were able to liberate the area and arrest several terrorists which were involed in those crimes. In a large-scale offensive the YPG are now trying to stop the advancing terrorists.
