The greater our responsibility to the survivors".
According to the residents of the Yazidi camp themselves, the local administration of the camp and Kurdish officials directly reporting to the office of Masoud Barzani hide the plight of Yazidi refugees and displaced persons, but the camp residents still have hope that after the visit of the German Foreign Minister, the truth will be revealed and the plight of Yazidis will become known.
We remind you that from 2014 to 2023, Germany provided over 800 million euros in aid to the camps of Yazidi refugees and displaced persons in Kurdistan, but what these amounts were spent on remains a mystery.
