The European Parliament has unanimously passed a resolution recognising the Islamic State’s (Isis) slaughter of religious minorities, including Christians and Yazidis, as genocide. The historic action on 4 February marks the first time the body has officially acknowledged an ongoing conflict as genocide.
IS (Daesh) has committed numerous atrocities against ethnic and religious minorities, including kidnapping, enslaving and raping Christian and Yazidi women, forcing Christians to live under its radical interpretation of Islam in the Syrian town of Al-Qaryatain and rounding up Yazidi men and boys for execution. The resolution – which was decided by a show of hands at a plenary session in Strasbourg – calls for the actors to be brought to justice for flouting international law, committing crimes against humanity and genocide.
