U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon slammed “brutal killings of civilians” by ISIS in northern Iraq, saying the Islamist radical group was tearing apart whole communities.
UN chief expressed concerns about religious and ethnic cleansing by the ISIS saying “All major faiths value peace and tolerance.”
“That is why I am especially outraged by the reports from Iraq of brutal killings of civilians by ISIS. Whole communities that had lived for generations in northern Iraq are being forced to flee or face death just for their religious beliefs,” he added.
He went on to say, communities should not be threatened simply because of “who they are and what they believe.”
