Over the past few decades, ISIS has proven that it is a ruthless and barbaric extremist organization that appears to love torturing, terrorizing and killing innocent people.
They have carried out numerous attacks on innocent civilians in countries all over the world.
In the Middle East, namely Syria and Iraq, ISIS has been responsible for untold brutality, sweeping over entire areas like an aggressive deadly disease.
As ISIS forces in Syria and Iraq have been steadily vanquished, the United Nations has discovered more than 200 mass graves.
Some reports are saying that these mass graves contain the remains of about 6,000 people killed by ISIS, but others say the mass graves contain up to 12,000 people that were slain by ISIS.
BBC – More than 200 mass graves containing thousands of bodies have been found in areas of Iraq that were once controlled by the Islamic State (IS) group, a UN investigation has found.
The graves were found in the north and western governorates of Nineveh, Kirkuk, Salahuddin and Anbar.
They could contain as many as 12,000 victims, the UN report said.
IS seized parts of Iraq in 2014 and imposed brutal rule, commonly killing anyone of whom it disapproved.
It was eventually vanquished by a US-led air campaign backed by Iraqi government forces and allied militias on the ground, although pockets of IS activity remain in some areas.
The sites, the report notes, contain critical evidence that will not only identify the victims but also help prosecutors build cases for war crimes, crimes against humanity and possibly genocide…
Among the bodies found in the mass graves so far are those of women children, elderly, those with disabilities and even foreign workers that were in the areas trying to help the people.
What ISIS has done to the people in Syria and Iraq is no different than what the Nazis did to Jews during World War II.
This makes it so hard to understand why so many young people have been so misguided as to travel to join ISIS forces.
It’s truly a sign that the world in general is suffering from an abandonment of God and His precepts.
