ISIS makes "fierce and renewed push for territory"
October 21, 2014
U.S. airstrikes don't appear to be slowing down ISIS. In fact, CNN reports that the barbaric terror group is on the move in northern Iraq:
ISIS militants launched about 15 near-simultaneous attacks on Kurdish forces in northern Iraq on Monday in what Kurdish government officials and the news agency Rudaw said was a fierce and renewed push for territory.
ISIS also launched attacks against Mosul Dam, a strategic prize, and also renewed its offensive on the Sinjar mountain range in northern Iraq.
CNN also says terrorists attacked "the village of Sharaf ad-Din, which holds one of the most important shrines for the Yazidi community." Make no mistake. Ethnic and religious "cleansing" is part of ISIS' stated goal to create an Islamic caliphate stretching from Beirut to Baghdad.
The Sinjar mountain range is where RUN Ministries began rescuing refugees back in August. Since then, more than 26,000 ISIS victims have escaped genocide and fled to RUN's "Community of Hope" refugee camps and safe homes seeking food, water, shelter, and protection.
As I told you yesterday, reports indicate that U.S. and Western relief aid is flowing to the terror group, rather than to their victims. According to The Daily Beast website:
"At a minimum, the aid means ISIS doesn't have to divert cash from its war budget to help feed the local population or the displaced persons, allowing it to focus its resources exclusively on fighters and war-making, say critics of the aid."
Now, one day later, came reports that ISIS is once again on the offensive. This is horrible news, as even more Iraqi Christians, Yazidis, and other religious minorities are sure to be murdered, tortured, raped, and kidnapped by these barbarians.
That's why RUN president Eric Watt and his team of brave, dedicated volunteers need your help now more than ever. Renewed ISIS violence could lead to another exponential surge of refugees over the next few days. Please consider doing what you can now to support RUN's heroic efforts on the front lines in northern Iraq.
More than 26,000 Iraqi Christians, Yazidis, and other religious minorities are currently under RUN's care and protection in their "Community of Hope" refugee camps and safe homes. Please help Eric's teams of volunteers continue to provide them with the food, clean water, medicine, clothes, and shelter they need.
Thank you for your prayers and support. God bless you!
