    Daesh captured the Iraqi town of Sinjar, predominantly inhabited by Yazidis, in August 2014 and killed between 2,000 and 5,000 men.

    Brutal and merciless Daesh terrorists have pursued a policy of terror and genocide toward the Yazidis – a religious community among the Kurds living primarily in Iraq’s Nineveh Province. Jihadists have killed Yazidis and captured their women to be used as sex slaves. But some Yazidi women have taken up arms against their aggressors and are now scaring them to death.
