GENEVA: Eight years on since the Daesh militant group’s massacres of Yazidis, more then 200,000 survivors are still displaced from their homes in Iraq, the United Nations said Thursday.
The needs of displaced persons living in and outside camps, and returnees remain high said the UN’s International Organization for Migration (IOM).
After seizing swathes of Iraq in 2014, Daesh militants carried out horrific massacres, including in the northern region of Sinjar where the Kurdish-speaking Yazidi minority — a monotheistic, esoteric community — has long been rooted.
