ISIS militants drive through the city of Raqqa

More News in the Fight against ISIS



News broke this weekend that ISIS had killed yet another American hostage. Peter Kassig, an American aid worker, disappeared in October 2013 while making a trip to deliver medical care in Syria. He was transferred late last year to a jail network in ISIS-held territory, where he became part of the group of hostages that included now-murdered American journalists Steven Sotloff and James Foley. Mr. Kassig, served in Iraq as part of the United States Army before founding an NGO that gives aid to Syrian civilians. His work models the highest ideals of pursuing justice and recognizing the dignity of every human being.

And, the situation in Iraq and Syria is still extremely volatile. Here are a few snippets from what has been happening lately:

We remain concerned about ISIS’s human rights violations and disrespect for religious freedom, and we will be monitoring the situation as it develops.
