The men were taken to an undisclosed location while the women and child were taken to the mountains and might be used as sex slaves.

Newsweek says, ISIS might use the Assyrian hostages for a prisoner swap with Kurdish fighters.
Calls made by relatives of the captives were answered by ISIS members telling them that nothing can be done to be done for the hostages.
Last week, ISIS beheaded 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya.
Personally, I believe all this happenings should be a wake up call for world leaders and Christians all over the world to cry out to God for help.
