Islamic State used Yazidi children as human shields

“Yazidi children who have escaped five years in captivity under so-called Islamic State are now having to face the long and difficult road to recovery in north east Syria…..They (Isis) put them on the frontline so the coalition fighter jets and YPG fighters would not attack… While Yazidi women were captured and used as sex slaves, families and children were torn apart.”

Such cruelty is not exclusive to the Islamic State, as the more “civilized” Muslim Brotherhood operatives in the West would have you believe. Hamas routinely uses children (and women) as human shields in Gaza; it also sends children to jihad camp. Human rights organizations and those who claim to care about human rights should be reeling over this. Instead, they are largely silent regarding Hamas. Apparently they think this tactic is justified when used against Israel.

“Yazidi children ‘used as human shields’ under so-called Islamic State rule speak to ITV News about difficult days ahead,” ITV News, February 26, 2019:

Yazidi children who have escaped five years in captivity under so-called Islamic State are now having to face the long and difficult road to recovery in north east Syria.

ITV News met with several of the young genocide survivors as the Isis caliphate faces its end.

Explaining the darker times the children have faced, Syrian Yazidi activist Mahmoud Rasho said: “They were used as human shields.

“They (Isis) put them on the frontline so the coalition fighter jets and YPG fighters would not attack.”

As a religious minority, the Yazidi people endured horrific attacks as Islamic State militants swept through Iraq and Syria.

In 2014, tens of thousands fled to the Sinjar mountains, northern Iraq, in an attempt to escape Isis.

While Yazidi women were captured and used as sex slaves, families and children were torn apart.

During the escape to the mountains, 11-year-old Saddam was separated from his mother…..
