The presence of PKK guerrillas has damaged the agricultural and tourism sectors of Sinjar province, where the Yezidi population lives. This was announced on June 28 by the mayor of Sinjar district.

According to the official, 60% of the lands of the Sinjar district are currently abandoned due to the presence of the PKK and its long-term military conflict.

"Residents of Yezidi villages cannot travel to their villages to take care of their gardens and livestock, wasting important economic resources of the area, which is considered one of the vital areas in the economic, agricultural and tourism spheres," he added.

In recent months, the area around Mount Shangal is not calm, there is a rotation and movement of military columns of the PKK and at any moment there may be clashes with ISIS accomplices or with the Iraqi army.

The flow of foreign and Yazidi tourists visiting the holy Lalesh has almost halved due to the tense situation in Sinjar.
