Today we learned that the so-called Islamic State murdered three Assyrians that had been taken hostage back in February, 2015. The three, whose names have not been released, were among some 280 Assyrinas who had been taken hostage from the Khabur Valley in Syria.
Out of respect for the murdered Assyrian men, we will not show the ISIS video here. But while they died, others fight on. We are absolutely committed to continuing our work with the West to East Leadership is Syria (WELS) initiative, through which we are providing support for Assyrians families who have lost men fighting ISIS, military advice and governance training to Assyrinas in Khabur, Syria.
