In a plot so nefarious one would think it came from an episode of South Park, ISIS militants have purportedly fed a kidnapped young man’s remain to his very own mother.
The New York Post reports the account in full detail. The backstory starts from the account of a British man named Yasir Abdulla, who left his wife and four kids behind in Yorkshire, after he went to go fight ISIS and drive them from his family’s homeland of Kurdistan in Northern Iraq. Abdulla stated, “I hate IS because of what happened to an old Kurdish woman from a nearby tribe. Her son was captured by IS fighters and taken as a prisoner to Mosul. She was determined to find her son and went to IS headquarters and asked to see him.”
The men went on to offer the woman refuge and sanctuary, then offered her some food so she could feel strong when she went to go see her son. “They brought her cups of tea and fed her a meal of cooked meat, rice and soup. She thought they were kind,” Abdullah reported. “But they had killed him and chopped him up and after she finished the meal and asked to see her son they laughed and said, ‘You’ve just eaten him.’”
Abdulla continued on in his account, “They dig a trench, put dry tree branches and leaves in there, set it alight and then throw prisoners on so they burn alive,” he said. “IS are very good at making people scared. If they make one person scared then that person will make another person scared and soon everyone is scared of IS.”
“But the Kurds are not scared of them. Someone has to stand and fight. We have got thousands of people in many villages and towns behind us. If we fall then all of those places fall, and that can’t happen.”
Abdulla completed one successful mission in Iraq and plans to return to fight again, as ISIS still has a stronghold 6 miles away from his family village.
This story, if completely veracious, is truly troubling.
