The Assyrian town of Tel Tamar in Khabour, Syria, has been the focus of ISIS attacks again.

There were 3 explosions in Tel Tamr, in which one was a hospital. So far 3 Assyrians have died in the attacks. The martyrs are Tell Nasri, George Ballo and Slivo Isaac.

It is expected that the number of dead will rise with the many injured in critical condition and many people still buried underneath rubble.

What makes this attack unusual is that ISIS released 25 hostages yesterday after they kidnapped 180 Assyrians from the village of Khabour earlier in the year.

After ISIS raided the Assyrian villages of Khabour on 23 February 2015, the majority of the residents fled to Tell Tammer, which is the last Assyrian strong hold in the Khabour area.
