ISIS is turning Izadi kids into suicide bombers
A Kurdish official disclosed that over 1,600 Izadi children have been trained by the Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) terrorist group as suicide bombers and executioners over the past three years.
The director of the Izadi Affairs Office of the Kurdistan Regional Government was quoted by the DPA as saying on Saturday that these children trained by the Takfiri terrorists are a global threat.
“It cannot be ruled out that Daesh could use them in terrorist actions in European countries as well as the US, Arab countries or elsewhere,” he noted.
According to recent figures, a total of 6,417 Izadis have managed to flee from the terrorists and were rescued by various liberating forces. Reports show that at least 9,900 Izadis were killed in the first few days of Daesh’s operations in Iraq in 2017.
Back in August 2014, Daesh terrorists overran Sinjar, killing, raping, and enslaving large numbers of Izadis. The town was recaptured on November 13, 2015, during a two-day operation by Peshmerga forces and Izadi fighters.
The Office of Kidnapped Affairs in the Northern Iraqi city of Dohuk says around 3,500 Izadi Kurds are currently being held captive in the Daesh-held areas, and that a large proportion of the abductees are women and children.
