LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - According to reports, ISIS entered Aqareb and Al-Mabujeh, two Shiite villages located near the town of Salamiyeh and the highway that links the capital, Damascus, to the northern city of Aleppo.

Once there, militant extremists used bricks to beat in the heads of children and then removed their limbs. Other victims were beheaded or executed by gun shots.

During the clashes, more than 50 people were killed and believed to belong to the Ismaili branch of Shiite Islam.

Many now fear future attacks because these atrocities mirror those carried out in the Yazidi areas in Syria and Iraq. The Sunni extremists of ISIS view the Shiites as "apostates deserving of death."

"Dozens of people are missing but it is not clear if they were kidnapped' by IS," the Syrian Observatory's chief Rami Abdurrahman said. 

News of this attack comes in hand with an new ISIS released video featuring a possible "American fighter" calling for more attacks in the U.S. The man also features "new weapons" built by the terrorist organization, including drones and rovers.


As the world continues to face dangers and forces of evil, we must grow stronger in prayer.

Glorious St. Michael, Prince of the heavenly hosts, who standest always ready to give assistance to the people of God; who didst fight with the dragon, the old serpent, and didst cast him out of heaven, and now valiantly defendest the Church of God that the gates of hell may never prevail against her, I earnestly entreat thee to assist me also, in the painful and dangerous conflict which I have to sustain against the same formidible foe. Be with me, O mighty Prince! that I may courageously fight and wholly vanquish that proud spirit, whom thou hast by the Divine Power, so gloriously overthrown, and whom our powerful King, Jesus Christ, has, in our nature, so completely overcome; to the end that having triumphed over the enemy of my salvation, I may with thee and the holy angels, praise the clemency of God who, having refused mercy to the rebellious angels after their fall, has granted repentance and forgiveness to fallen man.
Amen
