The United Nations Security Council condemned recent attacks in Iraq's Sinjar and Tal Afar by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) on Tuesday, urging the international community to respond to the "systematic persecution" of minority groups.

"The members of the Security Council condemn the attacks on Sinjar and Tal Afar in Iraq's Ninewa province by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and express their deep concern about the hundreds of thousands of Iraqis - many of them from vulnerable minority communities, especially Yezidis - displaced by ISIL's attacks and in urgent need of humanitarian assistance," said United Kingdom Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant, Security Council President for the month of August.
