Timestream: Yazidi Persecution and Genocide

Genocide Watch staff have published the sixteenth Timestream in a series of critical genocides in the world.

This Timestream covers the persecution and genocide of Yazidis, an indigenous minority group in Iraq, Syria, and Turkey, committed by ISIS. In August 2014, ISIS killed roughly 5,000 Yazidis for their religious beliefs. Approximately 500,000 Yazidis became refugees, and thousands of women and children were sold into sexual slavery. Six years later, the survivors are still denied aid and reparations.
