ISIS captures ‘230 Christian women and children’ in Syria

Rebel Staff

ISIS fighters have captured as many as 230 civilians, including dozens of Christians, 45 women and 19 children, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), a UK-based human rights organization.

The SOHR has claimed that ISIS fanatics allegedly seized 45 Assyrian Christian women and 19 children on Thursday night during raids conducted in the Syrian town of Al-Qaryatain, which is located in the western province of Homs.

According to the SOHR, capturing the town may help ISIS move fighters, weapons and supplies between the central-Syrian town of Palmyra and land that it already holds in Qalamun, to the west.

The terrorists reportedly started the attack with suicide bombings at the town’s checkpoints.

The Independent has reported that a handwritten note – which the newspaper has been unable to verify – purporting to contain the names of those taken by ISIS has been circulating on social media.

Describing the SOHR’s report as “very worrying,” Amnesty International has announced that it will be investigating the alleged kidnappings.

Having fallen victim to heavy persecution from the extremists, as many as two-thirds of the Assyrian community have deserted areas at risk from ISIS expansion, the newspaper continued.

The intensity of the barbarism espoused by ISIS terrorists in Iraq and Syria has shown little sign of relenting.

Local news outlets reported Monday that the self-declared Caliphate had executed 19 women for refusing to have sex with its fighters.

According to, an online Baghdad-based English-language newspaper, a media official of the Kurdistan Democratic Party in Mosul, Said Mimousini, said: “ISIS executed 19 women in the city of Mosul during the past two days.”

“The [death] penalty came on the background of the refusal to participate in the practice of sexual jihad,” he added.

Mimousini reportedly claimed the women were being held hostage in the ISIS-held stronghold of Mosul, Iraq, which the terrorist network seized in June last year.

Although ISIS fanatics attacked the Sinjar district in northern Iraq last year and captured hundreds of Yazidi women, it is not clear whether the 19 executed women were Yazidis or not.

Yazidism is an ancient faith, much older than Islam and Christianity, whose followers are regarded as heretical by ISIS members.

The False profit muhhammad was a torturer, thief, liar, child rapist, child molester and hypocrit. He forced a child named Aisha in to marriage at the age of 6 when he himself was in his 50’s. He consumated this forced marriage when she was 9.

ISIS only follows the lead of their role model Muhhammad.

Why are we attacking Assad then, Wayne? The mission started out “overthrow Assad with the help of the Syrian rebels”, then became, “oops, we created ISIS, let’s get them now” and where we are currently, “Well, lets train some more Syrian rebels to get our other Syrian rebels… and Assad too”. Anyone whose not been asleep can clearly see that “ISIS” is a mercenary force for the intelligence community, their existence provides the justification for Western forces to be in Syria, with the ultimate goal of “regime change”. All those men, women, and children exterminated, and for what? As Harper floods this country with radical Islamic “refugees”, he tells us we need C-51 to get the terrorists. I got a tip for CSIS if they wanna know who’s funding Islamic terrorism, it’s the treasonous parasites in Parliament (latin for: to speak lies). When did “national defense” come to mean funding “Syrian rebels” for foreign regime change??? Is it “national defense” to flood our country with people who hate us and reject our way of life?

ISIS will not stop when Assad is toppled. ISIS is against President Assad because he is a secular leader. If Assad is toppled ISIS will continue to butcher anyone who disagrees with them. ISIS will only be stopped when they are defeated militarily. As long as they control ground, they will continue to exist.

ISIS” will be stopped when Assad is toppled. “ISIS” = intelligence agency mercenaries, an excuse to drop bombs on a sovereign country that’s friendly to Russia and disliked by Israel. Never seen Assad’s wife or daughter in a burqa, yet Harper was best buddies with Saudi “king” Abdullah… Now promises to flood Canada with more Islamic parasites. Is this supposed to make me wanna vote blue?

ISIS” = “Syrian Rebels”. Was it worth it Canadian Taxpayer? Politicians called secular Assad “the butcher” because he dealt heavy-handed justice to Islamic extremists. A couple years later we have the PM kissing the ass of thankfully dead “king” Abdullah, offering his condolences “on behalf of all Canadians”. You don’t speak for me Mr. Harper, and neither do these other three party shuffle clowns who all supported “providing aid to Syrian rebels”. God will strike you down for supporting this evil.

Joan, I disagree. The article details that among the 230 were “dozens of Christians, 45 women and 19 children…..” What it most likely means is that there is no tragedy if it is males being captured. That is why the women get special mention.

Does anybody find the Headline to be a bit weird ? There is absolutely no problem saying that CHRISTIAN women and children were Captured , probably to be sold as slaves. Here is the bloody problem. They were captured by ISIS. A very nasty bunch., Isn’t that SWEET? I never heard of ISIS before a year ago. How about telling the TRUTH.. Is this a problem? They were captured by MUSLIMS. Muslims have captured Christians and are selling them into Slavery. This is the TRUTH.

I have no idea how these isis animals can still be wandering around attacking and killing people. How many more deaths, rapes and pillaging is everybody there going to stand back and take? And our country is probably accepting these Islamic jihad pigs from them countries without any clear idea of their background in some cases (which is a pretty good indicator of illegal activity). If they are discovered to be one of the jihadists they need to be beheaded, like they do to everyone else, and then shipped back to the middle east and pushed out the door of the plane in mid air.

What hell for the victims of Islamic State caliphate imperialists, not only of ISIS but also of Al Qaeda, Taliban, Pakistan, Iran, SA, Qatar, Turkey, Afghanistan …

What a brutal world it has become. How hard for young people to choose the good.

Cary Harris – It more likely means most were non-Christian.
commented 2015-08-08 16:01:25 -0400
Rebel Media, what is with the blatant lying headline on this article? “230 Christian women and children” yet the very first line of the article specifies 45 women and 19 children. That means most of those captured were men. I would expect this kind of deceptive feminist baiting from CBC or Huffpo, not Rebel. I am very disappointed and hope this does not continue.

Safe-to-say that Obama with do nothing about these foaming Islamic loony’s kidnapping women by the bus-full. He doesn’t even seem to mind that his own administration is soundly infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood…. You know, the ones that he appointed himself. Seems like a truly bizarre thing for a ‘Christian’ President to do. Oh wait, this just in – Obama is doing something – heading for the golf course.

How come Jimmy and Terry never comment on these stories I’d like to get their opinion

If we could only put the kibosh on this once and for all. If a republican (not Rand) gets in the White House and Harper stays in as PM, there may be a chance. I wonder how many more will die before then?

It is good thing that Pope Francis is coming to the rescue. Perhaps, he will promise to disband the Catholic Church in order to attain their release.

Perhaps Michelle Obama can hashtag ‘bring back our 230 Christian women and children’, and all will be fine in our world.
