ISIS Attacks Civilian School in Homs Behead Kurdish Women

Wonderful, freaking just wonderful.

The bombs went off in the city of Homs, in a neighborhood dominated by minority Alawities, a Shiite offshoot sect that President Bashar Assad also belongs to. It was one of the deadliest strikes to hit the government-controlled area in months.

The blasts occurred just as the children were leaving at the end of class at the Ekremah al-Makhzoumi elementary school, according to an official with the Homs governorate.

A Syrian pro-government channel aired a brief footage of the aftermath, showing distraught parents rushing about frantically looking for their children, amid strewn schoolbags and blood stains on the ground. Black flames rose from a car nearby.

Well so much for ISIS claim that they don't attack civilians.

The other big news is that ISIS captured some Kurdish fighters near Kobane and beheaded them all including three women.

There was a really moving picture posted here yesterday of two young Kurdish ladies with all their gear kissing loved ones goodbye as they go to the front lines to fight ISIS.

I hope they weren't part of the group who was captured and murdered.

2 I would hope so as well.

But the reality on the ground in Ain el Arab or Kobane today is heavy fighting and ISIS chopping off the head of everyone who dares stand against them.

3 I'm surprised ISIS would put women's unveiled heads on towers, when they refuse women to show their faces when alive. It shows how sadistic ISIS is. Such a shame Turkey is indirectly ethnic cleansing Kurds from the region by allowing ISIS free reign, without the Turks helping the Kurds militarily. Pity after the first world war, the western powers didn't create a Kurdistan. If there had been a Kurdistan, we would have never seen Kurds brutally massacred.
