The Islamic State kidnapped dozens of women and children in their latest round of offensives in Syria, showing characteristic brutality as their prospects of defeating U.S.-led coalition forces dwindle.
ISIS is using the women and children as hostages.
CBS News is forced to report: “A war monitoring group says Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters seized 36 women and children during simultaneous . The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Monday that 20 women and 16 children were seized from al-Shobki village in Sweida during the Wednesday attacks. The ambush by suspected ISIS militants left at least 221 people dead. Reports on social media suggest ISIS has sent photos of some of the kidnapped women, most of them from the minority Druze sect prevalent in Sweida, to their families in via WhatsApp.”
Sadly, this kind of behavior is typical of the region that Barack Obama de-stabilized, and of the groups that Barack Obama funded, armed, and emboldened alongside Hillary Clinton.
President Donald Trump is waging a strong offensive against the ISIS militants with Operation Roundup, which is supposed to be a final stage of aggression to crush ISIS in Syria and Iraq. So far, Trump has managed to use special operations and targeted bombings to obliterate ISIS groups in the region, without staging a costly and dangerous nation-building ground invasion like Bush perpetrated in Iraq.
The Department of Defense officially reported: “Operation Roundup, which began May 1 to accelerate the defeat of ISIS in the Middle Euphrates River Valley and Iraq-Syria border region, has continued to gain ground and remove terrorists from the battlefield through offensive operations coupled with precision coalition strike support. Between July 23-29, coalition military forces conducted nine strikes, consisting of 11 engagements, in Iraq and Syria.”
ISIS is known for its cruelty against young women and children, with many sex slaves — including Christians and members of the minority Yazidi sect — subjected to constant agonizing rapes.
