KRG con­demns the mur­der of Kayla Mueller

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment con­demns the mur­der by the Is­lamic State ter­ror­ist or­ga­ni­za­tion of Kayla Mueller, an Amer­i­can who had trav­eled to Syria to pro­vide hu­man­i­tar­ian as­sis­tance to those in need.

The kid­nap­ping

and mur­der of hu­man­i­tar­ian work­ers runs counter to all ba­sic moral im­per­a­tives that are the foun­da­tion of mod­ern civ­i­liza­tion. ISIS has dis­placed mil­lions of in­no­cent civil­ians from their homes; their at­tacks on hu­man­i­tar­ian aid work­ers demon­strate an in­com- pre­hen­si­ble and cyn­i­cal cal­lous­ness to­ward hu­man life.

Ms. Mueller was a brave young woman who ded­i­cated her life to the ser­vice of those in need. It is tragic that her life should be cut short. On be­half of the peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan, the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment ex­presses its deep­est con­do­lences to the fam­ily, friends, and col­leagues of Kayla Mueller and we should con­tinue work­ing hand in hand to com­bat this ter­ror­ist or­ga­ni­za­tion.
