‘Days Later, I Found Our Four Children’s Bodies’
While President Obama dithers about how to “hunt down” and “defeat” ISIS, the ruthless terror group is still raping and killing children in northern Iraq. RUN Ministries president Eric Watt shared yet another heartbreaking story of ISIS victims whose four children were brutally murdered. Here’s Eric’s latest email:
The situation in Iraq is so evil and dark that many have said that “it seems the world is ending soon.” Hundreds of Yazidi children were brutally killed last week by the jihadists, and no one seems to take notice. Kalil and his wife were rescued by our teams, but he lost all four of his children. Kalil was so broken and emotional, while he shared his story with our workers at the “Community of Hope” refugee camps, that I want to ask you to please forward his story to your team members. Kalil said:
We migrated because Islamic fighters were coming for all of our villages. We lived more than 50 miles from the nearest facilities, but were forced to walk and hide in the mountains of Sinjar. I knew that death was destroying other families, but I had no idea what would happen to our family. I gave them everything we had and begged them to release us. They beat us and tied our hands together so we could do nothing as they took our children away. Days later, I found our four children’s bodies on the rocks of a nearby mountain. My nine-year-old daughter was raped and then badly killed.
These terrorist barbarians have proven time and again that the lives of Iraqi Christians and other religious minorities mean nothing to them. Their heinous crimes have led to a humanitarian crisis that has no end in site.
But Eric and his team refuse to give up hope. Here’s how he ended his email to me, my staff and our Liberty Counsel Action friends:
With your help, we can help put an end to this evil. But we need your prayers and financial support today.—Eric
