Remember the Yazidis? ISIS massacred 5,000 of them and drove hundreds of thousands out of northern Iraq in 2014. More about that here. Details are now starting to emerge from an October 9 peace deal that could allow Yazidi survivors to begin returning home.
August marks a dark anniversary. Six years ago, ISIS captured the Nineveh plains in Iraq, including the city of Mosul. They captured and killed Yazidi and Christian men and women with savage zealotry. Thousands lost their lives. Hundreds of thousands were displaced. Many still haven’t returned home.
