Isil attack on Kobane is ‘second biggest massacre’ of civilians by the group in Syria

The Islamic State ‘s attack on the Syrian city of Kobani on Thursday amounted to one of the group’s largest massacres in the country’s four year-long war, a monitoring group has said.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the death toll from violence in the border city and surrounding area had reached 146 by Friday morning. The group’s director, Rami Abdulrahman, said it was the biggest single massacre of civilians by Islamic State (Isil) since the killing of hundreds of members of the Sunni Muslim tribe Sheitaat tribe in eastern Syria last year.

Eyewitnesses to the massacre said civilians were targeted on the streets with rockets and sniper shots, or executed in their homes.

    In related news, the EU member countries have agreed to settle over 400 hundred thousand african invaders. That should improve the terrorist level there. We will have to wait until Mulcair or Trudeau is elected PM to get our share, as they both want to open the flood gates to Syrian muslim refugees.

    Has anyone else ever noticed how regardless of the group they always hide their faces like the cowards they are. Real soldiers do not hide behind masks nor do they attack unarmed women, children and other civilians.

    I am ready for the end, there is so much crap coming from so many directions I think it is time to start over. I may not live through it but the world will be a better place afterwards. Between the leftist enablers, the muzz scum, and indifferent politicians and sheeple we need a reset.

      I believe in your lifetime that you will see islam extinguished with extreme prejudice. islam will find it’s rightful place in the dustbin of history with other failed ideas.
