Iraq’s Christians, Yezidi Say Kurds Have Failed Them In Battle Against ISIS

Dec 2nd, 2015 | By | Category: Featured

ChristianMilitiaIraqFox News reported yesterday that Iraqi Christians and Yezidi both say that the Kurds have not been helpful in defending them from Islamic State terrorists.

“No one is protecting the minorities, they are all only protecting their own interests,” noted a representative from Stand With Assyria.

“Assyrians and other minorities must have their own forces and do have their own forces but, unfortunately, the Kurdish Regional Government is stopping them from taking part in the battle against ISIS unless they declare obedience to the KRG and the Peshmerga,” said the representative.

John Eibner with Christians Solidarity International also noted: “There is a sense that the major powers in Iraq – the U.S.A., the Baghdad government and the KRG – do not view them as having sufficient value to justify the sacrifice of their own blood and treasure.”

Locals in Nineveh formed a sovereign Christian militia called the Nineveh Plain Protection Units (NPU) to defend Christians from ISIS terrorists.
