Jihadists “do not lack ammunition.” Russian reconciliation center for Syria have raised the alarm, denouncing the latest violent actions carried out by the militiamen of the self-styled Islamic State. Moscow officials have explained that Isis and Jabhat al-Nusra Front jihadists ‘‘heavily bombarded’’ the area around Aleppo.
Besides, for several days now, terrorists have been organizing actual “patrols”, using artillery in the Handarat area. “They have opened fire on residential areas, administrative buildings, and government forces posts.”
What is more, at least 15 people died in Syria yesterday, when war aircrafts of the Syrian government attacked the city of al-Boulil, near a military airport in the eastern province of Deir al-Zor, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The latter has also stated that there are four women and a child among the victims. The Islamic state controls most of the province of Deir al-Zor.
Yet, the violence of the Islamic State does not concern only Syria. In fact, 19 Yazidi women were burned alive in the area of Mosul, after refusing to have sex with jihadist. The victims, who had been abducted by jihadists to be used as sex slaves, were locked in iron cages and burned to death in the center of Mosul, before the eyes of hundreds of people.
