The United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq has called on the Iraqi Government to support and compensate Yazidis who have been persecuted in all their forms and have survived ISIS attacks.

In a statement released on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in War and Conflict, the Deputy Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General in Iraq said that the legislation on Yazidi survivors since March last year was an important step towards improving the lives of those who survived all the atrocities of ISIL.

The Deputy Secretary-General pointed out the need for full compliance with the law in order to allow the surviving Yazidis to receive all the relevant rights provided for by the law.

The UN official called on the Iraqi authorities to step up their efforts to bring to justice those responsible for these horrific crimes and to ensure that adequate resources, including financial and human resources, are allocated to meet the minimum needs of victims of sexual violence.
