Iraq: 200,000 Christians Have Fled The Nineveh Plain In The Last 24 Hours, Towns Completely Abandoned

Matthew 5:14, 16, “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden… Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Christians are the light of the world, but when forced to completely flee cities and towns and entire regions from the threat of the Beast, the only thing that remains is darkness. And like Sodom and Gomorrah, a kingdom full of darkness is a kingdom that will soon witness the full wrath of Almighty God …

Revelation 16:10-12, 16, “And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds. And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared… And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.”

AINA – “The push of the Islamic State (IS) from Mosul north into the Nineveh Plain, the last stronghold of Assyrians in Iraq, has created fear and panic in the population, causing a massive exodus from Assyrian villages. The influx of refugees into Ankawa and Noohadra (Dohuk) has overwhelmed the towns. There is a shortage of everything — shelter, food, water. Dispalced Assyrians are sleeping on sidewalks and in open fields.

AINA spoke to several government officials by telephone regarding the crisis in the Nineveh Plain. These same officials have also fled with the rest of the population.

Yesterday at midnight a column of IS vehicles entered Tel Kepe and took control of the city, whose population had already fled north. IS is now marching to Batnaya and Telsqof, which have been abandoned.

All of the population of the city of Alqosh has fled.

The massive exodus of Assyrians was precipitated in part by the withdrawal of Kurdish forces from the Nineveh Plain. With no one left to defend them, Assyrians followed the retreating Kurdish forces.

Baghdede is now nearly completely empty of Assyrians. The exodus began yesterday morning at 2:30 A.M when Kurdish forces announced they were withdrawing. The Bishops ordered all churches to ring their bells to warn the residents to flee and the exodus began.

After the Kurdish forces withdrew IS took control of the city and the surrounding areas, including Karamles and Bartella.

Last night and this morning IS robbed Assyrians as they fled Baghdede.

It is estimated that 200,000 Assyrians have fled the Nineveh Plain, heading north to Dohuk, Sarsink and Zakho and east to Ankawa and Arbel. The following is a list of Assyrian villages and towns which are now completely abandoned …” Read more.

Nahum 1:11-12a, “From you, Nineveh, has one come forth who plots evil against the LORD and devises wicked plans. This is what the LORD says: ‘Although they have allies and are numerous, they will be destroyed and pass away.’”

Flashback: ISIS Caliphate Now Aggressively Pursuing Christians In Towns Across The Nineveh Plain – “There is no rest for the wicked – or for those fleeing with their lives, it appears. Islamic State militants have now launched a mortar attack against the village of Tilkif in an attempt to break into one of the towns in the Nineveh Plain, where families driven from Mosul have found refuge. The militia of the self-proclaimed Islamic Caliphate having successfully driven all the Christians and Shiites from the city of Mosul in Iraq, has stepped up their campaign on ruthless persecution. ‘The attack started from a village controlled by jihadists,’ Father Paul Thabit Mekko, a Chaldean priest told the Fides news agency …” Read more.

      They were a wax army that melted away when things started to heat up on the ground. Afghanistan will be next.

      Muslims love Jesus and infact are true followers of Jesus. what do you think Muslims would learn from churches? singing snd dancing and ordaining women preachers and gay bishops? ? what will they learn from churches? we are against the killings that is taking place in Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan and other parts of the world. as a Muslim it’s wrong killing innocent person regardless of his faith. we are living in a multi faith societies snd cohesion is required to coexist

        You say “Muslims love Jesus and infact are true followers of Jesus” What has the Jesus of the bible taught you lately? How are you following Him? Jesus said…

        (Joh 5:23) …. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.

        Are you honoring the Son?

        Jesus also said…

        (Joh 14:24) “He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.

        You also said….

        “as a Muslim it’s wrong killing innocent person regardless of his faith. we are living in a multi faith societies snd cohesion is required to coexist”

        Haven’t you noticed? Islam cannot co-exist with other faiths?

    You are wicked and biased. This Isis beasts are not only after Christians. Muslims are also killed and crucified. These ISIS beats are a product of the Jews and they are fulfilling Jewish agenda. If they were really Muslims they could have sent their men to fight the zionists.
    With your views it sounds as if you are a zionist and you have nothing good for Christians.

      Muslims are a product of the book they follow. The Quran has the deceiving, conniving, scheming devil it it. It is beyond me why Muslims don’t dispose of such an abominable book.

      No, ISIS is a product of Islam. They are doing what their satanic god, allah, wants them to do, what the quran teaches them to do and what Muslims have always done for 1400 years. You should be ashamed of yourself….trying to blame Jews for Muslim atrocities. For shame! And the fact that ISIS is killing other Muslims only shows what a bloodthirsty religious death cult Islam really is.

      Instead of blaming Jews (or anyone), making excuses and hating non-Muslims…why not just get out of the madness that is Islam and believe on the One, true God of the bible…the God that has provided a Savior who suffered and died for your sin on a cross, then rose again from the dead, the evidence of being the living hope for any who repent and believe on Him.

    Nooh, “These ISIS beats are a product of the Jews and they are fulfilling Jewish agenda.”

    ISIS says they are going to fight against Israel, conquer Jerusalem and the Jewish homeland. How is that “fulfilling Jewish agenda”?
