  • ISIS mass grave death toll in Iraq and Syria surpasses 3,000

    Newsweek - 04/08/2015

    Max Abrahms, professor of political science at Northeastern University and member at the Council on Foreign Relations, predicts that the real number of ISIS’s mass killings is even higher and will be revealed as the group is rolled back from the areas it controls, such as Mosul, which a U.S. Central Command (Centcom) official revealed would be the target of a spring offensive.

    “I think that initially, last summer, the international community was not paying that much attention to Islamic State,” he notes. “During that time, under the noses of the international community, they slaughtered thousands of civilians. So, as Islamic State gets beaten back, the extent of these crimes is becoming clearer and clearer.”
