US possibly Targeting ISIS Family members.
The Washington Post reported on the new direction the military is possibly heading. Targeting families of suspected ISIS fighters.
……“However, multiple legal experts said that if the families of Islamic State fighters were indeed being targeted deliberately like Trump said he would, it would violate the Geneva Conventions. “Family members of combatants would be considered civilians,” David Bosco, an associate professor at Indiana University and author of a book on international law, said. “Targeting them intentionally would be illegal.” “”- WP“The other thing with the terrorists is you have to take out their families, when you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families,” Trump said during an appearance on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” in December 2015. “They care about their lives, don’t kid yourself. When they say they don’t care about their lives, you have to take out their families.”-WP
