He said that the authorities had decidied to turn the city into a museum so that people know what the jihadists had done to it.
He added that Iraqi Kurdistan leader Masoud Barzani supported the idea and so they got down to work.
“We are going to have an open-air museum here to remind people of the crimes committed here by Daesh terrorists. We’ll build a new Sinjar nearby.”
Xelil said that once the construction was over people would start getting back, adding that some of the surrounding villages still remained under Daesh control, but woud soon be liberated too.
Sinjar is a city in Iraq’s Mosul Province. In keeping with Article 140 of the Iraqi Constitution, Sinjar has the status of a disputed territory.
Kurdish representatives insist that after the liberation of Mosul Sinjar be declared a province and remain under Kurdish control.
