Sadly, according to the Daily Beast, ISIS forces have kidnapped at least 90 Christians from Syrian villages, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The abductions took place in a rural village near the town of Tel Tamr in the northeastern part of the country, the monitoring group said. ISIS reportedly seized the Assyrian Christians as they retreated during a Kurdish offensive. ISIS has targeted Christian communities many times during its gruesome reign of terror. Just a few days ago, ISIS released a video that appeared to show the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians.
