Yazidis Slam UN Over Shoddy Investigations Into 'Genocide' Committed by Daesh

Two years ago Daesh massacred Yazidis at Sinjar, and the terrorist group is still keeping thousands prisoner while the international community is not doing enough to help, Yazidi human rights campaigner Mirza Ismail told Radio Sputnik.

The Daesh terrorist group committed genocide against the Yazidis in north-west Iraq which is still ongoing, and a recent UN report into the attack does not provide enough answers about the attack, Chairman of the Yezidi Human Rights Organization Mirza Ismail told Radio Sputnik.

"The paper doesn't explain exactly what happened, from the beginning. Who was responsible, who was allegedly in the region to protect them (the Yazidis)," Ismail said.

"If it (the UN) followed its constitution and gave equal rights and treatment to all human beings, the Daesh genocide would have been recognized a year ago, because all the evidence is there, ISIS (Daesh) has never done anything in hiding, they did everything in the eyes of the world," Ismail said.

In August 2014 Daesh attacked the predominantly Yadizi town of Sinjar, in north-west Iraq. After taking control of the town and the surrounding areas, Daesh terrorists massacred 5,000 Yazidi men and took thousands of people hostage.

More than 40,000 Yazidis were forced to flee to the Sinjar mountains, where they were surrounded by Daesh forces and dependent on helicopter drops of food and water.

Since the massacre and kidnappings at Sinjar, rescue operations have managed to free more than 2,600 hostages, mostly women and children.

Earlier this month the UN reported that two years since the massacre, more than 3,200 women and children are still held by the group and being subjected to almost-unimaginable violence.....
