On 19 NOV 15 Aleteia news reported that the Dwekh Nawsha leader says Obama’s air support is helping, but America can do more.
“What our people have been facing in Iraq for the past year is a situation of being Assyrian Christians, an indigenous people, facing massacres and being thrown off our land,” Emanuel Khoshaba Youkhana said in an interview with Aleteia. Khoshaba, an Assyrian Christian, is secretary general of the Assyrian Patriotic Party and commander in chief of the Assyrian Armed Forces. The militia is known in the Assyrian language as Dwekh Nawsha, which translates as “Self-Sacrificers.”
“Our fight is for our religion, our ethnicity and our country,” he said.
