Mass Grave of 400 Unearthed in Already ISIS Held Sinjar, Iraq

Mass Grave of 400 Unearthed in Already ISIS Held Sinjar, Iraq

Alwaght- Iraqi forces have discovered a new mass grave containing the bodies of at least 400 people in already ISIS held city of Sinjar in northwestern Nineveh Province.

Al-Sumaria television network cited an unnamed Iraqi source as saying on Thursday that the victims are mainly from the Yazidi minority “brutally murdered” by ISIS terrorists.

Back in August 2014, ISIS terrorists overran Sinjar, killing, raping and enslaving large numbers of Yazidi Kurds.

The region was recaptured in November 2015, during an operation by Kurdish Peshmerga forces and Yazidi fighters.

Since then, Iraqi security forces have discovered dozens of mass graves across Nineveh Province.

The Endowments and Religious Affairs Ministry of the semi-autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government announced in early August that ISIS’ genocide against Yazidi had forced nearly 360,000 members of the minority to flee their hometowns, and another 90,000 had left Iraq and taken refuge in others countries.

The Takfiri outfit invaded Iraq in 2014 and overtook around a third of the country’s expanse in exceptionally brutal attacks.

Iraqi armed forces then started to reverse ISIS’ territorial gains one after another. They managed to retake all the lost territory last month with the help of volunteer forces and Iranian military advisors.

Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared the end of war against ISIS last week.
