Jihadists from the Islamic State group have kidnapped at the very least 90 Assyrian Christians in northeast Syria, a screen stated on Wednesday.

The kidnappings happened on Tuesday after IS confiscated 2 Assyrian villages from Kurdish forces in the province of Hassakeh, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The Britain-based monitor had no specifics on the missing out on Assyrians, who were drawned from 2 towns– Tal Shamiram as well as Tal Hermuz– after they were assaulted by IS.

IS has damaged churches and Christian temples in Syria, and also required that Christians living under its rule pay a tax obligation known as jizya. In Libya, IS jihadists last week launched a video clip revealing the beheadings of 21 mostly Egyptian Christians.
Much of Hassakeh is split in between Kurdish as well as IS command. Fighters from the Kurdish People’s Defense Systems (YPG) have been on the aggression in the province in recent days.

They have taken 24 towns and hamlets as component of an operation to attempt to recapture the town of Tal Hamis and bordering areas.

Tal Hamis lies to the eastern of the villages taken by IS on Tuesday. YPG pressures have also been on the onslaught in Raqa district, which neighbors Hassakeh, taking possession of 19 towns as they progress following their regain of the critical border town of Kobane last month.

The Kurdish forces have been backed by US-led air raid released by the worldwide union combating IS.

The Observatory claimed the union accomplished a collection of strikes around Tal Hamis on Tuesday that got rid of 14 IS members.
