Recently, ISIS killed 16 people, including four nuns, in Southen Yemen.
“This is just the latest in a string of brutal attacks committed by ISIS against Christians and other minorities,” Congressman Kevin Brady said.
“Yet the White House still hasn’t called this what it is: a genocide,” he said. “This week marks a congressionally mandated deadline requiring the Obama White House to make a determination regarding whether ISIS and Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad are guilty of genocide or mass atrocities.”
He said the U.S. House is ready to make a statement.
“As our Speaker Paul Ryan explained, the Obama White House is still not ready to say that ISIS and the Assad Regime are committing crimes against humanity,” he said.
“We are ready to say this,” Brady said. “We need to recognize these atrocities with clear eyes and then act upon them.”
