US warns of genocide by ISIS in Iraq, Syria

Fri, Mar 18, 2016, 03:22 PM
The US has warned that the situation in the ISIS-controlled parts of Syria and Iraq is reaching genocidal proportions against the minorities such as the Yazdis and there is no other way than military intervention to save the minorities.

The ISIS is targeting the minorities and trying to wipe them out, White House press secretary Josh Earnest told newsmen on Thursday.

This is deeply troubling, President Obama said on many occasions. There have been military actions to protect the religious minorities. At Mt Sinjar, the Yazidis have been trapped. The ISIS fighters are vowing to slaughter them.

Secretary of State John Kerry said Daesh (ISIS) is genocidal by thought, deed and action. It is responsible for crimes against humanity in the name of ethnic cleansing.

The US has collected information on ISIS actions for conducting investigations with any interested group. `What's the next step in the process and the US will be supportive of it,' Earnest added. Clearly, the US is hinting at ground troops intervention to halt genocide in the ISIS-controlled region.
