"Yazicians were entrusted to their own killers".

'WE HAVE CAMPAIGN WORK'

HDP Mardin deputy Ali Atalan, who informed ANF about the applications on the camp, stated that Midyat AFAD Camp is very troubled. The athlete, as a member of the Fatih deputy still can not enter that camp and stated that the ISIDs in the camp, "There is a military order there. According to the information that comes to us, there are İŞİDciler who massacre the Yazidis in this camp. This is a known thing. Information available to us. We believe they are brought consciously, especially in this camp. We wrote to AFAD for the camp entrance; But we are still waiting for the answer. We can not find anybody. We can reach out to the phone and out. We can get information like this. We do not have a chance to check the camp and see it on the spot. The Yazidi, entrusted to their own killers, unfortunately, "he spoke.

'WILL NOT BE SEEN AS REFUGEES'

Ali Atalan paid attention to the fact that Yazici saw their second-class refugee status treatment. "The right of the residents to receive treatment and medicines without paying the contribution is unfortunately not valid for the residents," said Atalan, who stated that the residents were not able to benefit from the benefits given to other refugees during the examination and medication. Ever since they came from Sengal, they have been in constant trouble. Session, status, health problems are not over. The source of these problems arises from the mentality of the AKP government, the Yazidis. It is certainly not independent of their mentality. Especially they are having trouble with the Yazidis from Şengel. These are the reflections of a sick political mentality. The current government does not recognize Yazidis, nor does it see it as a belief. He refused to condemn the 'genocide of Sengal'. From there, they do not see the refugees as first class.

Shia liberators hand back Yazidi land divided and ruined
Richard Spencer, The Times, 12:00AM 1 June, 2017

Three years ago, thousands of men were lined up along roadsides in Yazidi villages and slaughtered by Islamic State fighters with Kalashnikovs. Their wives and daughters were herded on to trucks and sold as sex slaves.

Thousands escaped up Mount Sinjar, where a rescue operation ensued under the world’s baffled gaze. Who were these people? How had Iraq come to this?

Genocide was narrowly averted, and in the past five days a dark chapter in the history of a colourful and abused minority has come to an end with the recapture from Islamic State of the last of their villages.

Hadi al-Ameri, head of the Badr Corps, a Shia militia that liberated Kocho this week, urged the Iraqi health ministry to search for mass graves. “We call on the Yazidis to come back,” Mr Ameri said. “We will do our best to protect them.”

The Yazidis’ homeland, though, is empty, smashed and divided. The Badr Corps is part of the Hashd al-Shaabi, or Popular Mobilisation Units, which control villages south of Mount Sinjar. The north is held by forces loyal to the Kurdistan Autonomous Region. Northwest is the PKK/PYD, the Kurdish alliance of northern Syria and southeastern Turkey, hated by Ankara but backed by the US. It was the PKK/PYD that came across the Syrian border and led them off the mountain.

Now Yazidis are asking if their homeland can ever be put back together.

“Yazidi land is a source of conflict … divided even more than before,” Khaldoun Salem, a local activist, said. “How can residents come back?”

Many Yazidis feel they were abandoned by KAR forces in 2014 and accuse the KAR, under President Barzani of Iraqi Kurdistan, of repressing them.

Matthew Barber of the University of Chicago, who was in Kurdistan in 2014, said Yazidis were flocking to join the PMU, even though it was Shia-led. They hope that if their areas are ruled by the central Iraqi government rather than by the KAR, they will have autonomy and be allowed to form a militia. “Aligning with Baghdad is about not wanting to be under someone else’s thumb,” Mr Barber said.

As elsewhere in the region, Sunni aggression has had the unintended effect of allowing the Shia enemies of Sunni jihadism to be seen as protectors of minorities. “The PMU are most trusted by the Yazidis,” Mr Salem said. “They are handing over the land they liberated to the Yazidi people, and that’s what is important for them.”

I have included the date of this article (12:00AM 1 June, 2017) to show how long it has taken to free the Yazidi land from ISIS

The SHOCKING FACT is that while the world plays war games in Syria and Iraq, the Yazidis - who have suffered the most at the hands of ISIS - have been ignored and forgotten for almost 3 YEARS X( X( X( X( X( X( X(

    The entire world FAILED the Yazidis when they were slaughtered by ISIS in their homes and villages

    The entire world FAILED the Yazidis when they were dying of cold and hunger on the mountain as they ran for their lives from ISIS

    The entire world FAILED the Yazidis when the women and children were captured by ISIS

    The entire world CONTINUES TO FAIL the THOUSANDS of Yazidis who still remain captives of ISIS and undergo DAILY RAPE AND TORTURE

Ex-captive of ISIS sheds tears on return to village in northern Iraq

Nadia Murad made an emotional return on Thursday to the Yazidi village in northern Iraq where she was captured and sold as a slave by Islamic State, three years ago.

She broke down in tears as she approached the school where the militants rounded up the population of Kojo and separated the men from the women, part of a series of crimes the United Nations described as a genocide against the Yazidi minority.

"We hoped our fate would be to be killed like the men instead of being sold and raped by Syrians, Iraqis ... Tunisians and Europeans," Murad said after composing herself, speaking from the roof of the school in presence of journalists.

"Today the village is surrounded by mass graves," said Murad, who received the European Parliament's Sakharov Prize for freedom of thought, along with another Yazidi woman, Lamiya Aji Bashar.

Murad, now aged 24, was taken in the summer of 2014 to Mosul, Islamic State's de facto capital in Iraq. She escaped in November 2014.

She told her story to the U.N. Security Council in 2015 and since then she has become active as an advocate for the Yazidis and for refugee and women's rights in general.

Bashar, now 19, was captured in the same raid as Murad and also kept as a sex slave. She was badly disfigured and blinded in one eye when a landmine went off as she fled.

More than 3,000 women are believed still held captive by IS, according to the community's leaders.

Kojo is one of the villages recaptured over the past few days by Popular Mobilisation, an Iraqi Shi'ite paramilitary force trained by Iran.

U.S.-backed Kurdish forces dislodged Islamic State from other Yazidi villages in the Sinjar region in 2015. Mosul is about to fall to a U.S.-backed Iraqi offensive.

The Yazidis are a religious community of about 400,000, whose beliefs combine elements of several ancient Middle Eastern religions. Islamic State militants consider them devil worshippers.

International human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, who represent Murad and other Yazidi victims, is lobbying the Iraqi government and the international community to allow a United Nations investigations into Islamic State's crimes.

"All we want," Murad said in Kojo, "is people to save 3,000 women in the Daesh prisons and to document our graves."

US 'kills ISIS leader' who called for rape of Yazidi women in Syrian air strike

The unconfirmed report was gleaned from ISIS supporter social media use

The ISIS leader responsible for providing the religious justification for the terror group to turn “infidel” women into sex slaves has reportedly been killed in a US air strike.

ISIS supporters in forums on the “deep web” have been posting photos of the ISIS commander, 32-year-old Turki al-Binali, leading intelligence services that track jihadi social media to conclude that he is likely dead, according to NBC. Other sources confirmed his death to CNN.

The US Department of Defense had previously confirmed that coalition forces had conducted air strikes against ISIS propaganda production facilities in Iraq and Syria late last month. Al-Binali was reportedly killed in the Syrian city of Mayadin near where those strikes occured.

The Pentagon declined to confirm or deny whether al-Binali had been killed, but a US intelligence official did not dispute to news agencies that he had died.

Al-Banali was a Bahrani cleric who offered religious opinions to ISIS leadership on a variety of issues. He was reportedly the head of the Isis Research and Fatwa Department in 2014 when that group released a fatwa that allowed for the rape of infidel women. There were more than 3,000 Yazidi women and girls taken captive from their villages in August of 2014.

3 years later many of those women and girls taken as sex slaves are still being repeatedly raped and brutalised

Al-Binali was described by ISIS as an “ideologue” and as a “spiritual leader.” He was passed over for a spokesman role in the terrorist organisation in 2016, leading to his marginalisation and confinement to a strictly religious role within ISIS. He reportedly hadn’t been actively involved in official Isis propaganda activities for two years.

The US has embarked on an effort to take out ISIS leaders involved in the use of social and other media responsible for recruiting new members both domestically and abroad.

‘Let ISIS see we do not die’: Yezidis repair their temples :ymhug:

Members of Sheikh Hassan temple in Bashiqa have begun work to repair the Yezidi place of worship. :ymapplause:

Five families, “servants” of the holy site, have raised funds to repair the temple in Bashiqa, northeast of Mosul, that was destroyed by ISIS when the extremist group carried out genocide against the Yezidi people.

“Let ISIS see with their eyes that we repaired it in even a more beautiful way,” said one volunteer. “Our domes are always beautiful, but it has become more attractive than before. Let them know we do not die.”

ISIS destroyed twenty temples in Bashiqa and Bahzan. The cost to repair all twenty temples is around 450 to 500 million Iraqi Dinar (380 - 420 thousand USD).

Second-class refugees in Turkey: Êzidîs

The Êzidîs held in the AFAD camp in Midyat are simply being punished. Subjected to a “second-class refugee” treatment due to their faith, they cannot benefit from healthcare and other rights granted for other refugees.

The AKP-ruled Turkish state has accommodated hundreds of thousands of Sunni refugees, provided them with the necessary care and training and created battalions out of them against the Kurds and granted them Turkish citizenship. On the other hand, a handful of Êzidîs hosted by DBP municipalities were forcibly transferred -after the state usurped the municipalities- to the state-run AFAD camp in Mardin's Midyat district where they are being through a kind of imprisonment.

Around 33 thousand Êzidîs came to Turkey following the genocide perpetrated by ISIS in the Êzidî lands in 2014. These were placed in Kurdish cities like Batman, Siirt, Amed, Urfa, Midyat and Nusaybin, hosted by municipalities held by the Democratic Regions' Party (DBP). 7 thousand Êzidîs were settled in the Fidanlık Camp run by the municipality of Amed's Yenişehir district. After the liberation of Shengal, the majority of them returned to their lands while some others migrated to Europe and one group headed to Zakho and Duhok.

RELOCATED BY THE TRUSTEES

At the end 1029 persons remained in the Fidanlik camp. The state did not provide any help whatsoever to them. Financial and moral support was only provided by the metropolitian municipality of Amed and the municipality of Yenîşehîr held by the DBP, staying with those families and taking care of them 24 hours a day in a rare case of solidarity. The Êzidîs staying there could freely perform their religious services and traditions. Their children were provided education about their culture and religion. Different workshops for women enabled them to take part in production. They could even work on gardening with the support of the municipality.Psychological treatment was also provided to them.

After the DBP municipalities were seized by state-appointed trustees, it was like the Êzidîs were also left to the hands of trustees. Support for them was suspended, the state started to rule on the camp and eventually subjected them to a forced transfer to the state-run AFAD camp in Midyat.

THEIR PROBLEMS INCREASED EVEN MORE

In the camp run by the state's Disaster and Emergency Management (AFAD) in Mardin's Midyat district the problems of the Êzidîs are growing daily. The Êzidîs have been forced to stay in the camp with persons of ISIS mentality. In this manner they get punished because they are permanently harassed and seen as second-class refugees due to their religious identity. They are denied the same rights which are given to the other refugees.

RESTRICTED ACCESS TO THE MARKET

Only two days in a week (Monday and Tuesday) are the Êzidîs allowed to go to the market place to meet their needs. Early in the morning hours they get on minibuses and go from the camp to the district center. Depending on their possibilities they buy things mainly for the children. Except for these two days they are not allowed to get out of the camp.

VISITS ARE NOT ALLOWED

Parliamentarians and delegations have many times filed an appeal requesting access to the camp but AFAD would not answer any of these requests, either positive or negative.

DISCRIMINATION IN THE HEALTH SERVICE

Unlike the Syrian refugees staying in the same camp, Êzidîs can hardly benefit from any health service. For examination and access to medication, they are forced to pay for 20 percent of the costs. Therefore many families are unable to visit a doctor due to financial difficulty.

ILL CHILDREN CANNOT UNDERGO SURGERY X(

In this unhygienic camp children and babies often fall ill. An eight year old child in this camp could not have a medical operation because the family cannot afford the treatment.

FOR MOSLEMS IT IS FREE OF CHARGE

N.A., an Êzidî of 44 years old who is staying at the camp stated that they cannot move freely in the camp and that they are treated as second class, saying: "We suffer especially from health issues.The children and babies are permanently falling ill. There is no hygiene or cleaning. The food given to us is very poor. When we fall ill we first of all go to a translator who creates problems and causes obstructions for us. And when we happen to visit a doctor we are not able to make our situation clear. Our little children are ill all the time. There are some whose conditions are critical. For access to medicines, the Moslems do not have to pay for anything, but from us they demand the 20 percent of the costs. Money is necessary for treatment in hospitals and other services, but we cannot afford these. For the Moslems it is free of charge but from us they demand money. Why would we stay here anyway, if we had any money? Here they are constantly putting us under pressure. The persons in charge are treating us as if we were diseased.”

“WE ARE CONCERNED FOR OUR CHILDREN”

Ş.Xidir who is 56 years old expressed that the camp personnel are putting psychological pressure let alone helping them, telling that: “Thanks to some people in Midyat some money has been collected and the child has been operated on twice. Money has also been collected for the medicine, but nonetheless one more surgery is required. That means money is again necessary. The sick ones are not only this child, but all the children here. So for which one of them will money be collected? Our biggest concern are our little children. Because we cannot provide well for them and they are in bad conditions and circumstances, they get sick all the time. They intend to wipe out the entire generation of ours."

DIFFICULTIES FOR RELIGIOUS SERVICES

On top of all problems, the Êzidîs in the camp are facing difficulties to perform their religious services in the camp conditions. Êzidîs keep quiet about their problems as their biggest fear is to be thrown out of the camp. :((

Êzîdxan Asayish calls on the migrant youth to return home

Êzidxan Asayish members called the migrant Êzidî youth: “Come, we shall fight with a common stance and a common goal and prevent the invasion of sacred Êzidî land.”

Shengal Resistance Units (YBŞ), Shengal Women’s Units (YJŞ) and the Êzidxan Asayish Security Forces were founded by Shengali youth after the ISIS genocide on August 3, 2014 that the Êzidîs call the “73rd Firman”.

CALL FOR THE MIGRANT YOUTH

Êzidxan Asayish member Berxwedan Şengali from the Duhle village in Shengal spoke about their efforts: “We as the Êzidxan Asayish protect the Êzidî people along with the YBŞ and YJŞ. We will never lean on a foreign force for the protection of our people. We are defending Shengal with our will and our strength and solving the problems of the Shengali people. We are following on the footsteps of the martyrs, and we will avenge them. We will defend the honor and dignity of the Êzidî people until our last breath.”

Şengali called on the migrant Êzidî youth: “For how long will you idly watch the tears of the mothers? Come, we will fight with a common stance and a common goal to prevent the invasion of sacred Êzidî land.”

Guhle Village Asayish Member Xelef Adike said: “As a young Êzidî, I joined the Asayish forces to defend the lands of Êzidxan. My purpose is to prevent massacres of our people. All Êzidîs should consider themselves responsible for this.”

“SOLVING THE PROBLEMS OF OUR PEOPLE IS OUR DUTY"

Asayish member Demhat Êzidî said: “Our people have experienced hundreds of genocides up to date, 74 of which are known by name. There could be more. Protecting Êzidxan is our duty. Solving the probems of our people is our duty. The village security forces were founded on the people’s demand, and the Asayish members are from this village.”

“People of Shengal need self-defense and autonomy”

Member of Shengal’s Democratic Autonomy Assembly and chairman of PADÊ Qehtan Elî stated that the Êzidî people need to have their own self-defense and autonomous system, saying: “If we do not defend ourselves, nobody will come to protect us." SAD BUT TRUE :((

Freedom and Democracy Party of Êzidîs (PADÊ, Partiya Azadi û Demokrasiya Êzidiyan) Chairman Qehtan Elî spoke to ANF about the agenda of Shengal’s Constituent Assembly which held its second congress between 30th and 31st May and changed its name into Democratic Autonomy Assembly of Shengal.

Elî stated that: “Many topics were raised in the two days of the congress, among which the most discussed ones have been Shengal’s autonomy and defense issues. We can say that we have come to good conclusions about how to achieve the realization of these.”

CALL TO THE ÊZIDÎS THAT JOINED HASHD AL-SHAABÎ

Elî drew attention to Êzidî youths who joined the Hashd al-Shaabî recently, saying: “Our Êzidî community and youth are joining the ranks of Hashd al-Shaabî. That is unfortunately a very sad situation because instead of joining them they should take part in their own assembly and secure their autonomy.”

Emphasizing that the youth's participation into the ranks of Hashd al-Shaabî is unacceptable, Elî called on these youths to “Come and join the ranks of Êzidxan's defense units YBŞ/YJŞ instead. Serve your own defense and protect your community from all kinds of dangers. If we do not protect ourselves today, nobody else will protect or defend us. We faced this truth with the massacre in 2014. We witnessed ourselves what happened to our people, the women, children, girls and elders. When the ISIS gangs attacked us, weren't there any military forces here to protect us? They all fled and left us alone. We will face more massacres in future unless we found our autonomy and self-administration. For that reason, the Êzidî community and especially the youths should participate in works and efforts four our land in all aspects.”

Elî remarked that all the participants were plased with the organisation of the congress, adding: “This is the first time all our Êzidî people from Rojava to Europe participated in a congress which by itself became a great source of morale to our people. With this high attendance the congress was held and our assembly founded.”

“NOBODY PROTECTED THE ÊZIDÎS EXCEPT FOR THE GUERILLAS AND YBŞ/YJŞ”

PADÊ chairman Qehtan Elî continued his evaluation on Shengal’s autonomy as follows: ”As it is today, our people wish to live autonomously, with no dependence on other forces. When the gangs attacked Shengal, nobody defended the people except for the guerillas and those who reached the mountains and later joined the Êzidxan forces, the YBŞ/YJŞ. It is thanks to them that we have founded our assembly and talk about Shengal’s autonomy in today's congress.”

Elî expressed the hope for the second congress of the Constituent Assembly to become ultimately the spark for a very soon realization of Shengal’s autonomy and that independence would not be only for the Êzidî people living in Shengal but also all those around the world.

Qehtan Elî called on all the Êzidîs around the world to join Shengal’s Democratic Autonomy Assembly and Êzidxan's Defense Force YBŞ/YJŞ, and to organize themselves to declare their autonomy to the world and Iraq. :ymapplause:

Re: Yazidi UPDATES genocide has occurred and is ongoing

PostAuthor: Anthea » Tue Jun 06, 2017 9:29 am

Şengal Yazidis must establish self-defense and joint defense

At this moment, everyone outside the KDP, Iraq and Turkey accepts the autonomy of the Yazidi.

Heşdi Shabi also made DAIIS out of many villages around Mosul. A significant portion of the villagers between Şengal and Mosul have issued DAIS; Sengal has reached the villagers of Yazdi. Again, the area of ​​Sengal and Rojava took some places between Kurdistan and reached the border of Syria. This progress of Hezdi Shabi brings about some problems between YGS and KDP in and around Sengal. The arrival of Heshdi Shabi in the area of ​​Sengal revealed a new situation. This is closely related to Kurdish Kurds.

After August 3, 2014, a new period and date for Sengal and Yazidis began. It is no longer possible for Sengal and Yazid to accept the situation they lived before 3 August 2014. Yazidis accept genocide if they accept the old situation. In this respect, it is indispensable to have an autonomous Sengal, self-defense and self-council. This is no longer a demand; Yazidis formed both self-defense and self-councils. This is the basis of a democratic autonomous life. Of course, self-defense must also depend on the self-assembly of the Yazidi. There is no democratic autonomy without self-defense, self-government.

At this moment, everyone outside the KDP, Iraq and Turkey accepts the autonomy of the Yazidi. Rather, there can be no power to challenge the autonomy of the Yazidi. In fact, the constitution of Iraq has the autonomous region elements called La Center. Because it is no longer possible to keep Iraq united centrally. Only the autonomy and local democracy can protect the Iraqi unity. Although the KDP speaks of establishing a state to hold around society, the Kurdish Federation of Basur is a political solution to the unity of Iraq. If the KDP's independent state rhetoric is outside of Kirkuk and some controversial regions, there will be no advantage for the Kurds. It may even happen that Kurdistan is broken down like this. In this respect, many political analysts consider the KDP's state-building agenda to be a tactic to cover the political problems in blackmail, blackmail, and Kurdish Kurdistan.

The KDP is not in solving the problem, it is in a position to aggravate the problems. In this respect, those who aggravate the problems are not taken seriously in the state agenda. Even when Başurê Kurdistan becomes a state, it is clear that even half of the present situation can not be independent. Perhaps in the present case, the capacity to act independently is not in the majority of states in the world.

As the KDP abandoned Sengal to DAIW on 3 August, it became a force that prevented Yazidis from autonomy in Sengal. The whole policy has been to disintegrate the Yazidi with the money, the scales, threatening and blackmailing with screaming. YBŞ and the guerrillas there are trying to prevent the unity of the Yazidi by attacking the guerrilla who played a historical role in the prevention of the August 3rd ferman by making enemies. The Yazidis prevented the power of the Yazidi to be strong by opposing their unity, their own councils, their self-defense, their democratic autonomy. The Yazidis should have achieved their democratic autonomy and now they would have a strong interlocutor against every state. The authorship of the Yazidi was accepted by both Iraq and the whole world. However, saying that I would rule with the KDP, the self-parliament in Sengal was also opposed to self-defense, that is to say democratic autonomy, to prevent Yazidis from becoming strong interlocutors. For this reason, Hesdi Shabi easily reveals the attitude of dominating certain places in the rural area of ​​Şengal. There is no doubt that Hesdi Shabi can not be said to have taken these villages from DAISY.

What needs to be done now is that the Yazidi should unite as one unity and unite all the Yazidian military forces in one single framework. These military forces must also depend on the self-assembly of the Yazidi and the self-assembly must declare democratic autonomy. When the Yazidi people take this step, the KDP and Iraq, Hesdi Shabi, have to accept the Autonomy of Yazidis. In fact, Yazidis can immediately announce a democratic autonomy project to the whole world, and autonomy develops the construction. Such autonomy is the most legitimate right of the Yazidi. No one can oppose the creation of free and democratic lives on the basis of democratic autonomy of the Yazidi.

After 3 August 2014, Sengal's autonomy became legitimate. Therefore, even if everyone opposes the autonomy of Sengal in the world, the KDP can not oppose it. Whatever they do in this regard, the KDP can not prevent the autonomy of Sengal. If the KDP interferes with the autonomy of Şengal, if he tries to prevent it, he will lose himself first.

All Yazidis must demonstrate their democratic will against the KDP, against Iraq, and against Hishdi Shabi. They should show that they will not accept any political or administrative activities other than autonomy. They must show that they will not give up without the self-defense in order to prevent the imperial and genocide. There is a historic opportunity for Yazidis. If they do not establish their autonomy, their free and democratic lives in this period, Yazidis lose a lot and meet new fermans. They will face the erosion of history with cultural genocide, the greatest ferman.

The Yazidians should no longer accept the dominance of anyone, no matter who they are. They must accept the sovereignty of neither the KDP nor Iraq nor any other power. If they know their democratic autonomy, Yazidis must recognize them and maintain their relations with them.

The YBŞ and the Yazici self council have taken an important step at the moment, including all the writings. If the power is to attack these organs and powers that are based on democratic autonomy, the self-assembly and the YBŞ must resist them. Whoever opposes the power gains the self-regulating organs. If KDP attacks, Hesdi Shabi attacks, Iraq attacks, and Turkey attacks, there will be self-defense forces. If the Hesdi Shabi Yazidi Kurds accept the self-defense of the Yazidi and their self-defense and the democratic autonomy of the Yazidis, the Yazidi can live with them peacefully on the territory of the autonomous Sengal. But if the self-council and the self-defense of the Yazidis are not recognized, the Yazidis will have an attitude towards them.

The KDP must abandon the wrong policy until now, accept the autonomy of Sengal, the self-council, self-defense. The KDP should be withdrawn from Sheng'al, leaving Shengal to the common self-defense forces and self-assembly of the Yazidis. If he does so, Iraq, Hesdi Shabi and other forces will have to accept the democratic autonomy of Yazidis.

After years of murder and enslavement by ISIL, Iraq’s Yazidis are determined to liberate their own homeland

When Naif Jasso rolled across the arid plains of Sinjar with his group of Yazidi fighters, it was the end of a journey home that had taken almost three years.

Mr Jasso and his men were on their way to the village of Kocho, riding on pick up trucks with their Kalashnikovs, determined to continue the liberation of their land from ISIL.

Shiite militias, also known as the Hashed Al Shaabi, entered southern Sinjar on May 12, methodically flushing out ISIL from villages they had taken in August 2014, when the terror group swept into the area to kill and enslave the Yazidi minority living in this remote part of northern Iraq.

The Hashed recruited from among the Yazidi survivors for their offensive. Mr Jasso, a tall man with black hair, a broad moustache and sad eyes, by his own account now leads a thousand men that threw in their lot with the Hashed.

He is the brother of Kocho village elder Ahmed Jasso, who was butchered by ISIL, along with thousands of Yazidis who perished at the hands of the insurgents.

Among the mass killings all over Sinjar, the Kocho massacre stood out. The southernmost Yazidi village in the Nineveh plains, its residents were caught by surprise when the extremists attacked. Surrounded, Ahmed Jasso surrendered to ISIL after the villagers were promised safe passage.

Instead, they were herded into the local school building, where the men were separated from the women and children. Around 380 men were driven off in groups and shot, while the women were trucked off into slavery.

Mr Jasso and his family were among the few survivors because they were not home on that fateful day. Now, he had come to avenge the death of his brother, the annihilation of the village, and to reclaim his land.

"I am from Kocho, I had to be involved in the liberation," he told The National.

Around 180 Yazidi fighters approached Kocho on May 25, says Mr Jasso, accompanied by a detachment of Shiite militias. The Yazidis had already helped liberate a string of villages in Sinjar, but they were still thirsty for revenge.

Upon reaching the outskirts of the village, the convoy fanned out to surround it, and Hashed heavy guns began to tear holes into the facade of the school building which was ISIL’s primary defence post. After two days of fighting, ISIL was vanquished, and a deathly silence fell over the empty houses and desolate streets.

In the surrounding farmlands lie the bodies of the murdered men. Six mass graves have already been discovered, according to Mr Jasso, some within sight of the school building that sits on the edge of the village. He expects more to be found.

Nadia Murad, the UN Goodwill Ambassador who was captured in Kocho but managed to escape ISIL captivity, visited the village a few days later. Video footage shows her breaking down in a school classroom, screaming in anguish and struggling to stay on her feet.

After she was gone, the silence returned.

Inside the school, a woman’s shoe or a discarded dress hints at the sinister use of the building. Mattresses and military apparel are all that is left. The single storey brick or mud houses stand empty and lifeless in the searing heat.

Life may never return to Kocho again, which was once home to 1,270 people. Most of the men have been killed, and majority of the women and children remain in ISIL captivity.

Without their menfolk, families are unlikely to farm the surrounding fields, or to return to a place haunted by dark memories. The Yazidis fear their Arab neighbours, many of whom joined ISIL and took part in the killing and looting. On the southernmost fringe of Yazidi territory, Kocho lies exposed.

Those who joined Mr Jasso’s "Land of the Yazidis" brigade did so because, like many Yazidis, they believe the Hashed to be their best insurance against another possible genocide. Thousands of Yazidis had joined units tied to the Kurdish Peshmerga, or a Yazidi PKK affiliate in the aftermath of the ISIL blitz. But the Peshmerga lost their status as protectors of Sinjar when they left without a fight in 2014, and the PKK’s radical ideology is unappealing to most Yazidis, a traditional and conservative people.

The automous Kurdish government is intent on incorporating Sinjar into its territory, and harbours ambitions to break away from Iraq. Mr Jasso and his men want to establish self-rule in Sinjar, but remain under the control of the central government in Baghdad.

"We want Sinjar to be a separate province that is a part of Iraq," he says.

This makes his unit an instrument of the Hashed, a government-sanctioned militia that is hostile to Kurdish territorial expansion. The Shiite militias also have close ties with Iran which wants to hang on to its gains in Sinjar to maintain a corridor leading from Iran to nearby Syria.

Aiming for self-rule and local security forces to defend them against future threats, the men from the Yazidi brigade are already tightly controlled by the Hashed. During an interview in his headquarters in the village of Tel Kassab, Mr Jasso is flanked by a media officer of the Hashed, who scowls at reporters asking difficult questions and interrupts to give favourable answers on Mr Jasso’s behalf.

The Kurds control the northern part of Sinjar after driving ISIL back. Should tensions between them and the Hashed escalate, Yazidis on both sides risk being dragged into a conflict over their land, fighting for parties imposing their agenda on the Yazidis’ fight for a future in Iraq.

Yazidi man living in Lincoln left his homeland behind, but not its music

In an upstairs apartment in a nondescript building in a leafy neighborhood in the capital city sits a 30-year-old man and his tambor.

Hatim Ido is many things: a father awaiting the imminent birth of his second child; a student learning cardiac vascular sonography; an immigrant who once translated for the U.S. Army in Iraq.

But at this particular moment, with cameras, microphones and strangers from Washington, D.C., in his living room, Hatim is a musician.

His left hand flies up and down the frets of the tambor’s long neck, while his right hand picks and plucks at its three strings. He coaxes a haunting, mournful melody from an instrument reportedly with origins older than the prophet Mohammed, Jesus and the Romans.

Hatim (pronounced HAH-tim) belongs to a persecuted Iraqi religious minority group, the Yazidis.

Like other members of the Yazidi diaspora, uprooted from their home in northern Iraq by the country’s troubles and the Islamic State, he plays the tambor — an instrument also called the “tambur” or “saz” — to connect himself with a place he is never likely to call home again.

Like generations of every ethnic group that has come to America, he finds connection and comfort in music from home.

Capturing the playing — Hatim, while many things, is not a singer and did not sing — is an earnest couple based in D.C. and a photojournalist they brought along for a week in Lincoln. Alex Ebsary and Sasha Ingber are trying to collect the music and stories of the displaced through their new project, Music in Exile.

They have done this with Arabs, Kurds and Christians in the Kurdistan region of northern Iraq, during a trip there last fall to refugee camps and camps for internally displaced people. And they are filming interviews and musical performances by Iraqis in the U.S., including in Virginia and now Lincoln, where they hope to record up to 10 Iraqi immigrants.

The couple will present their findings at a free public presentation tonight at 6:30 at First Presbyterian Church, 840 S. 17th St., in Lincoln.

Alex, 31, is a Buffalo, New York, native who has spent several years living in Turkey and the Kurdish area of northern Iraq. He currently serves as the director of public and academic affairs for the Kurdistan Regional Government Representation in the U.S., which he stresses is separate from this Music in Exile enterprise.

Alex said he once watched a Syrian refugee play the saz — which is another name for the tambor — in a refugee camp and was so moved that he wanted to share music like that more broadly.

Sasha, 32, is a Westport, Connecticut, native who works separately as a multimedia journalist in D.C., mainly for the Smithsonian’s culture magazine, Journeys. Sasha’s late grandfather was an aspiring opera singer and German Jew during Hitler’s reign. He survived the cattle car rides and the concentration camps, two of them, Sasha says, in part by singing. She said he was later told by other survivors that his singing offered hope and humanity.

Sasha said the newcomers’ music serves a variety of purposes: to connect with back home; to keep traditions and stories alive; to show new friends a side they might not often get to see.

“It’s easy for refugees to be misunderstood,” she said. “We don’t think of their culture and tradition and memories — everything they’re forced to leave behind. Music is a door to that world. Music is a very intimate thing.”

Alex said that when people leave the place they’re from, music can be a touchstone they carry with them. The Yazidis in particular, who have been persecuted throughout history because of their religious beliefs, carry their story through songs about what has happened to them, what they have lost and what they miss.

Hatim was in middle school in Iraq when the United States invaded in 2003. Because steady, good-paying jobs were scarce, he eventually applied to become a translator for the U.S. Army and got on in 2008 at age 18. He served for more than three years, but the job became too dangerous.

His role helping U.S. troops meant Hatim could apply for a special immigrant visa. He got to America in 2013. It was January. In Chicago. Hatim heard there were a lot of Yazidis living in Nebraska and moved to Lincoln. A year and a half later, the Islamic State massacred or kidnapped hundreds of Yazidis from the part of Iraq where Hatim had lived.

In Lincoln, Hatim taught social adjustment classes for other Yazidi immigrants. He helped people apply for green cards and prepare for the U.S. citizenship test. Then he quit to go back to school to get a health sciences degree. His wife, Hanaa, currently works at McDonald’s.

Hatim remembers his grandfather playing the tambor. He remembers, at age 12, picking up his father’s tambor and messing with it. He remembers teaching himself the songs he’d hear. He remembers having to leave his tambor behind.

Re: Yazidi UPDATES genocide has occurred and is ongoing

ISIS' Yazidi Genocide
By Valeria Cetorelli, Isaac Sasson, Nazar Shabila, and Gilbert Burnham

On August 3, 2014, the Islamic State (or ISIS) attacked the region around Mount Sinjar in northwestern Iraq, near the country’s border with Syria.

The region was home to approximately 400,000 Yazidis, the members of an ancient and often-persecuted religious minority whose beliefs and practices incorporate elements of Christianity, Islam, and other monotheistic religions. ISIS seized Sinjar City and the surrounding villages in a few hours, kidnapping and killing the Yazidis who could not flee. Those who could escaped to Mount Sinjar, where they were besieged by ISIS for days, enduring temperatures of over 122 degrees Fahrenheit without access to water, food, or medical care. At the request of the Iraqi government, the United States began conducting air strikes and air-dropping humanitarian aid on August 8. Between August 9 and August 13, Kurdish forces opened a safe corridor, allowing most of the surviving Yazidis to flee through Syria into the Kurdistan region of Iraq.

It has now been a year since a UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry determined that ISIS’ violence against the Yazidis constitutes a case of genocide, defined by the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide as “acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group.” ISIS had openly proclaimed, in its English-language magazine, Dabiq, its intent to destroy the “pagan” Yazidi minority through killing, enslavement, and forced conversion.

But although ISIS’ genocidal intent has long been clear, the extent of the group’s atrocities has remained murky. Local authorities and human rights organizations have made some attempts to compile lists of victims. According to those lists, between 2,500 and 5,000 Yazidis had been killed by ISIS while over 6,000 had been kidnapped. But the UN has not yet been able to independently verify these figures.

Despite the difficulties involved, it is important to document the extent of ISIS’ genocidal violence against the Yazidis. Such documentation provides information for humanitarian assistance and protection, aids rescue missions and health-care strategies, supports accountability in national and international courts and tribunals, and serves as a historical record for recovery and reconciliation.

To support these goals, we conducted a retrospective household survey in thirteen camps for internally displaced persons in Iraqi Kurdistan, where the majority of Sinjar’s surviving Yazidis now live. Our field staff consisted of four pairs of local Yazidi interviewers supervised by Valeria Cetorelli, the lead researcher for the project. Between November and December 2015, we interviewed a systematic random sample of 1,300 households across the thirteen camps about killings and kidnappings of household members by ISIS. By analyzing these data, we estimated the total number of Yazidis killed and kidnapped by ISIS and their age and gender characteristics.

Based on the survey data, we estimated that around 9,900 Yazidis were either killed or kidnapped over the course of a few days in August 2014—roughly 2.5 percent of Sinjar’s entire Yazidi population at the time of the attack. An estimated 3,100 were killed, of whom nearly half were executed by gunshot, beheading, or being burned alive. The rest died from lack of food and water or from injuries received during the siege of Mount Sinjar. The remaining 6,800 were kidnapped, with over one-third still missing at the time of the survey. According to those who escaped, Yazidis in captivity have suffered abuses such as forced religious conversion, torture, and sex slavery.

    Around 9,900 Yazidis were either killed or kidnapped over the course of a few days in August 2014—roughly 2.5 percent of Sinjar’s entire Yazidi population at the time of the attack

Sectarian violence in Iraq has typically been directed toward adult men. Yet our survey shows that ISIS targeted the Yazidis independent of age and sex. In fact, around one percent of the nuclear families in our sample had had all their members either killed or kidnapped and could respond to the survey only because at least one member had escaped from captivity. Children under 15 years old were the most severely affected: they accounted for approximately 90 percent of those who died on Mount Sinjar during the siege and were much less likely than adults to escape in the event of capture. Several accounts from our interviewees confirmed that girls were sold or gifted to ISIS fighters while boys were forced into ISIS training camps.

A survey of this nature has a number of limitations—households in camps may not perfectly represent Sinjar’s broader Yazidi population, and some uncertainty remains about that population’s exact size at the time of the attack. Indeed, the survey may have underestimated the toll because of the unknown number of families whose members were all killed or captured, with no one surviving to tell their stories. Our estimates nevertheless clearly indicate the severity of the attack and corroborate figures previously reported to the UN by local authorities and human rights organizations.

Although the international community, including the United States, has been criticized in the past for failing to intervene to prevent genocide, ISIS’ atrocities against the Yazidis could have been far worse. Without the combined efforts of local and international forces, tens of thousands more Yazidis would have been killed or kidnapped. But had aid been more prompt and thorough, more lives could have been saved. And the violence isn’t over—almost three years after the attack on Sinjar the genocide is ongoing, with many Yazidis still in ISIS captivity. The parties fighting against ISIS in Iraq and Syria should consider rescue plans for Yazidi captives during their ongoing military operations, and there is a need for greater humanitarian efforts to provide medical and psychosocial care for survivors, which has so far been limited. The international community should also contribute with funding and expertise to the reconstruction of the Sinjar region now that it has been taken back from ISIS.

In addition to supporting the survivors, concrete steps should be taken to hold perpetrators accountable for their actions, whether through a UN Security Council referral to the International Criminal Court or the establishment of an ad hoc tribunal. As Nadia Murad, a young Yazidi woman who was enslaved by ISIS for several months and is now the UN goodwill ambassador for the dignity of survivors of human trafficking, said last July: “It is time for this tragedy to stop, and it is time for the world to see our wounds. It is my right to ask the world to be on my side. ISIS attacked us and killed us in our houses. They killed my brother and my mother. They kidnapped me and other girls with me. It is my right to request you to bring justice.”

ISIS burns 19 Yazidi girls to death for refusing sex with group’s fighters

The militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group have reportedly burnt at least nineteen Yazidi girls to death after they refused to remain as sex slaves with the terror group, it has been reported

According to the local activists, the incident has taken place during the recent days in the city of Mosul in Iraq.

Abdullah Al-Malla, a local media activist, has told the Kurdish news agency ARA News, that the girls were burnt alive after they refused to have sex with the fighters of the group.

“They were punished for refusing to have sex with Isis militants,” Al-Malla said.

Another eyewitness has also said that the brutal execution of the girls was carried out in an open area and in front of the hundreds of people.

The eyewitness said the girls were locked inside the cage and were set on fire in front of the public as no one could do anything for the victims.

The terror group has been attempting to eliminate the Yazidi people as part of its ethnic cleansing efforts.

According to the reports, the terror group has taken thousands of Yazidi women and girls in their custody, mainly using them as sex slaves.

MoD: ISIS prison for Yazidi women captives found in Mosul

Iraq’s Ministry of Defense said Sunday that army forces had run into a prison in Mosul where Islamic State militants had used lock up women from the Yazidi religious minority.

The prison was found at the 17 Tamuz (July 17th) district in western Mosul, one of the districts which Iraqi forces have recaptured from the militants since it launched an offensive in February to retake the western side of the city.

Iraqi forces are currently besieging ISIS members in western Mosul’s Old City, the place from where the group first declared the establishment of an Islamist “caliphate” in 2014. Troops have discovered several mass graves of Iraqi citizens and security members, as well as prison facilities where IS has tortured on locked up Iraqis from all ethnicities and religious identities.

Many Yazidis, whose beliefs combine elements of several Middle Eastern religions, were persecuted and held in Mosul by Islamic State, which considered them devil-worshippers.

At least 9,900 of Iraq’s Yazidis were killed or kidnapped in just days in an Islamic State attack in 2014, according to a rare study that documented the number of Yazidis affected.

About 3,100 Yazidis were killed – with more than half shot, beheaded or burned alive – and about 6,800 kidnapped to become sex slaves or fighters, according to the report published in the Public Library of Science journal PLoS Medicine.

Popular Mobilization Units, the paramilitary force fighting ISIS alongside the government, said a few weeks ago they had liberated Yazidi habitats west of Mosul.
