Netherlands FM demands international tribunal to try ISIL members

The United Nations has called the crimes committed by ISIL, in both Syria and Iraq, a genocide.

The Foreign Minister of the Netherlands Stef Blok, has called for an international tribunal to be established to investigate the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS).

He proposed that the tribunal should look into the claims that the armed group committed genocide during its so-called “caliphate” across Syria and Iraq.
