Trump calls for targeting Islamic State fighters' families

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump takes the stage at a campaign rally in Waterville ValleyRepublican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said on Wednesday his plan for combating Islamic State militants involves targeting not just the group’s fighters but also their families. “When you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families,” Trump said on Fox News. “They care about their lives, don’t kid yourselves.” Trump said if he were president, he would try to avoid civilian deaths in going after the militant group, but he said the Obama administration was “fighting a very politically correct war.” Christoph Wilcke of Human Rights Watch said in response to Trump’s comments that military forces legally can only target combatants.
