(Syria News) An American organization defending aggrieved Christians, revealed on Tuesday, that the self-proclaimed Islamic State group has executed 250 Christian children in Syria, by putting them in a dough mixer, while criticized the United Nations’ negligence to the crises of Christians and other minorities in Iraq and Syria, Alsumaria News reported.
The organization, called the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), reported that through its affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ), it made an oral intervention before the United Nations Human Rights Council on behalf of Christians facing genocide in the Middle East.
The ACLJ pointed out, “The actions of ISIS against Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq and Syria clearly embody the definition of genocide as enshrined in the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide,” adding that, “The ISIS campaign to destroy these religious minorities and decimate their homelands and cultures undoubtedly meets the definition of genocide, and as long as the UN does not recognize it as such, these vulnerable groups remain unprotected and in peril.”
“We got the report of a Christian Syrian woman who saw Christians being killed and tortured, and children being beheaded in front of their parents,” explaining that, “250 children were put in the dough mixer, they were kneaded. The oldest one of them was four-years-old.”
“ISIS tortured a boy while demanding his father and two others renounce Christianity, before executing all four by crucifixion. Eight Christian women were publically raped and beheaded. There are “mass graves of Christians,” the report added.
Furthermore, American Center for Law and Justice stated that the victims of ISIS’s genocide deserve the recognition and protection of the international community, and affirmed the importance that the United Nations acknowledge the Islamic State crimes as genocides.
