PKK fighters mislead Yezidi children
Many Kurdish Yezidis left their homes and resorted to Mount Shingal fearing from the Islamic State fighters' threats. Now the people are mad at the misbehavior of Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) fighters who kidnap the Yezidi children and use them as new recruits.
The Kurdish Yezidi women say that the PKK fighters deceived their children. They have kidnapped them to use them as new soldiers. This is considered as a big crime committed against the Yezidi families.
Activists believe that there is still hope for the return of those children who have been captured by IS fighters, but there is no ray of hope for the return of the misled children by PKK fighters.
Nado Kochik, a Kurdish woman, said PKK fighters have exploited the difficult conditions the Yezidi people are living in; they have started tempting the children to go with them and carry guns.
"This is a big crime because those who are tempted by the PKK fighters are all under 18 years old. We as Shingail people and Kurdish Yezidis are against this behavior. We see no differences between the behavior of IS and PKK fighters," di- vulged Kochik
Hadiya Khalaf, another refugee from Shingal, said the PKK fighters do not kill time by talking to grown-up people because they know they can do nothing with grown-up people.
Lazima Yousif, a women activist, said the families of kidnapped children are living in a bad psychological condition because they know their children have been misled and tempted. "To tell the truth, there is no hope for the return of those children who are controlled by PKK fighters because their brains have been washed."
