Report: ISIL orders no food aid for Christians in Mosul
Catholic World News - July 16, 2014
The Sunni jihadist group that controls much of Iraq and Syria has ordered that no food aid be distributed to Christians in Mosul, according to a Fides news agency report.
The ban also extends to Shiite Muslims.
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), which took over Iraq’s 2nd-largest city in June, has threatened to punish those who violate the order, according to the report.
