The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

hin­dered them from cel­e­brat­ing the feast. Thou­sands of them have been cap­tured by ISIS and many were killed. Dur­ing the three days fast­ing, they prayed to God to res­cue the kid­napped and free their lands after they have gone through many heinous crimes. The Yazidis ad­here to their re­li­gion and have not given it up after the 74 geno­cides. Their ad- her­ence to their re­li­gion and loving peace have helped them sur­vive.

It is true that they were not happy with not cel­e­brat­ing the feast but they were happy that their land has been freed by Yazidi free­dom fight­ers and Pesh­merge. Ma­soud Barzani, the Kur­dish Pres­i­dent has ded­i­cated Pesh­merge vic­tory to Yazidi mi­nor­ity on the day of their feast and has promised to be in the front lines fight­ing with Pesh­merge for free­ing ev­ery piece of Kur­dish land. Thus, the de­feat­ing of IS by Pesh­merge forces has planted the roots of hope among the Kur­dish peo­ple.

‘’In the past, streets were filled with peo­ple while cel­e­brat­ing the Ezi feast but now they are empty and no one is cel­e­brat­ing be­cause of our peo­ple, be­cause of those who have been killed, kid­napped and those who are fight­ing. There will be no feast be­fore free­ing our men, women and girls and be­fore free­ing our lands," Hazim Kori, a Yazidi man, said. Jabir Khero, 26 yaers old, said, ’’I will not cel­e­brate the feast un­til I see my sis­ter free from ISIS and lib­er­ate Shin­gal." Qasim Shesho, Yazidi and Pesh­merge Com­man­der, said that this year's feast has be­come two, one is our feast and the other is lib­er­at­ing our land from ISIS.
