ISIS genocide against Yezidis shall not be forgotten
The prominent Kurdish leader and former president of the Kurdistan Region, Masoud Barzani, said on Monday that the Islamic State (IS) genocide against Kurdish Yezidis will never be forgotten.
Barzani made the statement in a message he issued to mark the Yezidis’ religious ceremony of mid-summer.
“On the occasion of Yezidi religious ceremony of Chle Havine, I extend my warmest congratulations to religious leaders, Yezidi brothers and sisters in Kurdistan and beyond,” reads the message.
“This ceremony is at a time that Kurdistan is still bleeding from what the terrorists did to our Yezidi sisters and brothers.”
Barzani also hoped that the Yezidis could soon find their homes safe to return after many years of displacement.
