Geno­cide in Shin­gal

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Hassan Shin­gali

ate for the chil­dren and the ba­bies in the arms of their des­per­ate moth­ers. They are the ones who die first. Hun­dreds of Yazidis have been cap­tured by the ter­ror­ist mon­sters and taken to un­known ar­eas, es­pe­cially young women. Now, in Mo­sul, the ISIS tries to sell these women like slaves. Can any hu­man be­ing imag­ine the sit­u­a­tion? Many peo­ple, around 15,000, could flee to Syria in the begin­ning. But now they try to come back to the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion via the border point of Pe­shabour. The Pesh­merge and the YPG, the Kur­dish armed forces in Syr­ian Kur­duis­tan, did their best to res­cue as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble. The dire sit­u­a­tion of the dis­placed peo­ple is hard to imag­ine. The num­bers are huge. There are no suit­able places for all. They stay in houses, schools, un­com­pleted build­ings and vil­lages. The process of res­cu­ing the peo­ple from the Moun­tain is still un­der­go­ing and about 10000 in­di­vid­u­als are still stranded there. They wait to come down. There are still two Yazidi com­plexes, Hatme and Kojo, un­der the con­trol of the ISIS. The ter­ror­ists com­pel the Yazidis to con­vert to Is­lam oth­er­wise they will be killed. The sit­u­a­tion is hor­ri­ble for young women. They are raped by the ISIS armed ban­dits and then killed. These days we see some hope­ful sign of as­sis­tance reach­ing the trapped peo­ple. And the quick re­sponse of the Pres­i­dent Obama to wage air srikes against the ISIS is con­sid­ered by the Yazidis and the Kurds in gen­eral as the light at the end of the tun­nel. Hope­fully this bloody mon­ster ISIS will be erad­i­cated once for all at the hands of its op­pressed.
