Israeli Druse leader calls on US to bomb ISIS near border

As Syrian Druse near the border with Israel prepare for an assault by Islamic State or other jihadists, the head of the Druse community in Israel called on the US to bomb terrorist positions.

Sheikh Maufak Tarif, the head of the Druse community in Israel, told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday that the country’s Druse call on the governments of Israel and the US to prevent a catastrophe for their brethren across the border in Syria.

“We request that the Americans would attack Islamic State in this area, just as it is doing in other parts of Syria,” Tarif said. “We meet with the Americans tomorrow to discuss the situation,” he added.
