More than 250,000 Yazidis still live in camps in Iraq that were created especially for them and for those who fled from ISIS during its invasion of Iraq and its control over a third of its territory, committing a number of crimes against humanity, according to UN and international human rights organizations, these crimes are genocide.

Among the crimes that have been recognized as genocide are the mass killings and captivity of women and the great destruction that befell the largest Yazidi city, Sinjar, which witnessed these massacres on August 3, 2014.

Unknown fate

Hala Sefil, a Yazidi survivor who celebrated her eighth anniversary of liberation after spending three years in ISIS captivity, said that many of the Yazidi women who were abducted are still missing and those who were released cannot return to their previous lives. Some of them, due to the lack of state support and non-compliance with the law on surviving Yezidis, still suffer from a difficult economic situation and difficulties in getting a job.

Sefil notes that more than 2,800 Yazidi women and children are still abducted and the Iraqi government is not taking any action to find them or set up a committee on the matter. She expresses her dissatisfaction with the Iraqi government's failure to contain the Yazidi survivors because they have not received any financial or moral support from the government to help them reintegrate back into society and she said that "When I was released 5 years ago, I started working. as a care worker in a private health center for displaced people, today I am the director of Yazda International Organization, which has been very supportive of me and the Yezidi survivors".
