In March 2003, the United States invaded Iraq to overthrow the regime of Saddam Hussein. As we know, there were many reasons for this, but in this case, we will not touch on the topic of why the United States invaded Iraq. The question here is more about how the Yezidis lived under Saddam and after him.
Saddam's rule, to put it mildly, cannot be called democratic, he kept all citizens in check and did not give free rein to separatism and the opposition.
As for the Yezidis, they also faced a few problems. The Yazidis lived in isolation and had their own villages, and many of their villages were destroyed by Saddam's regime. The Baathists created collective villages and forcibly relocated the Yezidis from their historical villages, which were destroyed.
