Shoebat.com reported yesterday before it became news, that ISIS attacked the Assyrian villages in the Hasaka province in northeast Syria where ISIS fighters were met by members of Natorehs, a Christian brigade which is also called The Assyrian Guards where Assyrian fighters were killed running low on ammunition and help from anyone in the West while killing tens of ISIS fighters. And the fighting is still ongoing in Tel Tamar. In the process an estimated 117 Christians, elderly, women and children were kidnapped by ISIS.
There were 12 Christians abducted from Tel Hurmiz, 15 from Tel Goran. They have been brought to Jabal Abdul Aziz. The residents of the villages of Tel Shamiran (approximately 50) and Tel Jazira (about 40) are being held captive in their own villages by ISIS.
There approximate number (117) is concluded by adding kidnapped and held. These are as good as dead. Hani Zaya, whose parents, who live in Tel Goran, were abducted by ISIS. According to Mr. Zaya, local Arabs who are members of ISIS and who knew the Assyrian village residents reportedly brought them to “safe-houses” in nearby villages. None of the captives have answered or made telephone calls. Calls made by relatives of the captives have been answered by ISIS members, who have said there is nothing to be done for the hostages.
On top of all this, a number of churches have been destroyed, including the church in Tel Hurmiz, one of the oldest churches in Syria, the Mar Bisho church in Tel Shamiran, the church in Qabr Shamiy and the church in Tel Baloua. Here is the Assyrian church of Tel Hurmiz in Hasaka, Syria:
The massacre of the Christian Assyrians is on its way with no help coming from the Western powers. Obama instead is aiding The Free Syrian Army working with Turkey to train 5000 Islamist fighters in order to oust Bashar Al-Assad. Yet it was the Syrian army whom Obama wants to end were the only ones reportedly 3-5 kilometers from Tel Hurmiz has offered assistance.
No one is paying attention to the 35 contiguous Assyrian villages on both sides of the Khabur river, stretching 80 kilometers west from Hassaka to Ras al-Ain. The remaining inhabitants of these villages, some 3000, have now been evacuated, most to Hasaka and about 200 to Qamishli. Hundreds have taken refuge in St. Mary church in Hasaka and and St. Ephrem church in Qamishli.
An Assyrian women who lives in Indiana said her mother, father and sister were abducted in Tel Jazira.
Three weeks ago ISIS ordered Assyrians in the region of Hassaka to remove the crosses from their churches and to pay jizya (Christian poll tax), warning residents that if they failed to pay they would have to leave or else be killed (AINA 2015-02-03).
