The Observatory head of the monitoring group, Rami Abdel-Rahman said, “the 900 civilians included some Arabs from the villages near al-Bab, but the majority are Kurds.”

Abdel-Rahman added that, the terrorist group moved about 350 of those kidnapped to al-Raqqa, the de facto capital of Islamic State in Syria. The remaining victims were said to have been put in detention centres inside Islamic State-held areas in northern region of Syria.

The militants brutally killed 13 civilians and shot dead five more, while they were trying to escape.

It should be recalled that on May 31, the Kurd-led Democratic Forces of Syria (DFS), commenced an offensive to drive Islamic State from the northern town of Minbij, which is less than 20 kilometres from the Turkish border.

The DFS, a US-backed alliance of Arabs and Kurds, gained entry into Minbij on Thursday, June 23.

According to sources, Minbij has been under Islamic State’s rule since 2014. It is a strategic town in terms of its importance based on its location along a supply route from the Turkish border to al-Raqqa.

Nigeria is still grappling with its own terrorism in the Northern part of the country, but is gradually fading out, as the military captured some terrorists during an operation, while some escaped with kidnapped women.
