"In the north of Syria, YPG fighters [Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units] have conducted an operation and freed a group of 10 women and 41 children. Three Kurdish fighters were killed in the operation," the source told RIA Novosti.
The group of Yazidis was captured by Daesh in August 2014, when the Islamists seized the Sinjar district in northern Iraq.
The Yazidis are an independent religious community concentrated primarily in Iraq’s Nineveh province.
Daesh is a terrorist group that has captured large areas of land in Syria and Iraq, where it has proclaimed a caliphate. The terror group is outlawed in Russia, the United States and in several other countries.
