A Mosul court handed down a death sentence to Yazidi Heero Balo, suspected of ‘crimes against the Arab population’. The criminal case was initiated following a complaint by the mother of a murdered ISIS member claiming that her son was killed by Heero Balo.

In response, the Yezidis organised a rally opposing the court decision and demanding a review of the case. We remind that the murdered man was a member of ISIS and participated in the genocide of the Yezidi people.

Yazidi commander Kasim Shasho said that the accused was tortured in prison, as a result of which he accepted all charges, and that the murdered man was a member of ISIS and participated in the genocide of Yazidis. He also threatened revenge if the death sentence was carried out. In response to Yazidi protests, Iraqi authorities sent troops to the region to ‘protect the population from the Yazidis’, and threats from radical groups have also been received. The Yazidis, in turn, are reinforcing their troops in preparation for defence.
