DUHOK –Sinjar mayor Mahma Khalil accused the Iraqi government of blocking a strategic plan to rebuild the town by not providing the necessary funds.  Speaking at a press conference on Saturday (Feb. 27) Khalil asserted that Sinjar has financial rights based on the Iraqi constitution.

At the press conference held in Duhok, Khalil blamed the central government in Baghdad for not providing the necessary assistance saying, “We don’t know whether this is because we are residents of Sinjar or because we are Yazidi or Kurds.”

The mayor of Sinjar continued, “Although we lack a budget, we have a determination as strong as Mount Sinjar.  We will continue the effort to rebuild and Sinjar will be reconstructed.”

Khalil called on the wealthy, Christians and Muslims alike, to assist in Sinjar’s reconstruction.

Militants overran Sinjar in northwest Iraq in August 2014, systematically killing, capturing and enslaving thousands of its Yazidi inhabitants in what the United Nations has said may constitute attempted genocide.

Peshmerga forces announced they had taken control of Sinjar town on 13 November and were working to secure the district that fell to militants in 2014.
