Baghdad, 3 August 2020 - Recalling the atrocities committed by Da’esh (ISIL) against the Yazidis six years ago, the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq, Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert, commended the Yazidis’ resilience in preserving their culture and land, and determinedly pursuing their rights despite the odds.

She urged Baghdad and Erbil to reach agreement without delay to provide this beleaguered community with the tools and the right environment to rebuild their lives.


In 2014, Da’esh (ISIL) ravaged through Sinjar, killing and destroying, singling out Yazidis in their systematic campaign of destruction. Thousands upon thousands of people fled to the mountains. Many were killed. 
Women and children were kidnapped and enslaved, subjected to heinous sexual crimes. Many remain missing, and the survivors continue to bear the scars of this trauma. Women in particular suffer acutely from stigma and rejection. Haunted by the dark shadow of these atrocities, and buffeted by present day political, security and economic challenges, the Yazidis remain determined to build a better future.

“I take heart in the determination of the many Yazidis pursuing freedom and justice for their community”, said Hennis-Plasschaert. Still, she stated, their ordeal is not over. “Sinjaris continue to suffer – from insecurity, the absence of adequate services and the lack of a unified administration”.

“Why must they continue to pay the price?” she asked. “We know full well that sustainable solutions are within reach”, she added, reiterating her call on the governments in Baghdad and Erbil to urgently resolve this file and reach agreement without delay. “Stable governance and security structures are crucial foundations for the community to rebuild and thrive. We owe it to the victims. We owe it to the survivors. We owe it to our shared sense of humanity”.

Masoud Barzani: Baghdad has not honored an agreement to hand Sinjar over to its owners

On anniversary of atrocities against Yazidis, UN Iraq Representative salutes community’s resilience and urges agreement for greater stability %D9%85%D8%B3%D8%B9%D9%88%D8%AF-%D8%A8%D8%A7%D8%B1%D8%B2%D8%A7%D9%86%D9%8A










Shafaq News / Kurdish leader Masoud Barzani said, on Monday, that an agreement was concluded with the Iraqi government during the entry of the Iraqi army to Sinjar, to be managed by its indigenous sons after the events of October 2017, adding that "the Iraqi government did not abide by the agreement and handed Sinjar to other people."



  "Six years pass today, since the genocide catastrophe in Sinjar, the catastrophe during which ISIS terrorists brutally committed the crime against the Yazidis," said a letter to Barzani, received by Shafaq News, on the occasion of the sixth anniversary of ISIS's invasion of Sinjar on August 3, 2015. The crime is "a deep wound on the body of the Kurdistan people and it will never be forgotten."



Barzani added that "targeting the Yezidis came because they were Kurds and because of their beliefs, they were attacked by hatred, ignorance and lack of conscience by the terrorists." He explained that "the crime that was committed against them was an extension of that series of disasters and crimes that were committed against the people of Kurdistan throughout history."



"To support him with all possibilities for the demands of the Yazidis in order to return to their homes and areas with high heads, and to have a quiet and calm life away from injustice, injustice and oppression, and that they can manage their affairs in their areas," Barzani said, expressing "regret that the Sinjar region becomes after the events of the sixth October 10, under the influence of the opponents of Kurdistan.



Barzani, who is the president of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, said that "at the time and in order not to allow the recurrence of other disasters and new bloodshed among the Yazidis, it was agreed that Sinjar and other areas should be managed by the Yazidis," adding that "the Iraqi government has not adhered to that agreement yet and signed Sinjar is in the hands of other people, so for now, the Yazidis in the Sinjar region are not sure about their lives and their future and have not returned to their areas and have remained in situations of displacement and camp life, and this is in fact a great injustice. "   



Barzani stressed that "this abnormal situation in Sinjar must be ended and Sinjar should return to the hands of its original owners, and measures must be taken to ensure that disasters, injustice and crimes against Yazidis and other components are not repeated."



ISIS invaded the Sinjar district, the stronghold of the Yazidi religion, on August 3, 2014, and took control of the area until it was expelled from it the following year, by the Peshmerga forces.



At that time, the nations said that the organization was committing genocide against Yezidis. According to Yazidi officials, ISIS killed 1293 people during the first days of the Sinjar invasion, and about 6 thousand Yazidis were kidnapped, including about 3,000 women and girls who were taken by the organization as a "spaya" of sexual slavery. 



Although ISIS lost, in late 2017, the territories it controlled in Iraq, some 2,800 Yazidis were still missing.
