ERBIL, Kurdistan Region (Kurdistan 24) – Another Ezidis common grave was found in the Sinjar region north on Wednesday, containing a dozen bodies that were killed by the Islamic State (IS) group.
"The mbad grave contains the bodies of 73 people, men, women and children executed by the Islamic State group when they controlled the region," local official Chokor Melhem Elias told AFP.
The latest discovery in the Rambussi area near the city of Qahtaniyya, he added.
In August 2014, IS addressed the religious minority for extinction, killing men and enslaving women and children.
The United Nations estimates that 3,000 of them are still captives.
Kurdish warriors backed by the USA UU The coalition coalition recovered Sinjar from the SI in November 2015 before Iraqi security forces took control of the region in October.
As government troops advanced through Iraq they discovered dozens of mbad graves with hundreds of bodies in areas that fell under the brutal rule of the jihadists.
In December 2015, the Kurdish government submitted an official request to the international community to recognize the mbadacres in Shingal (Sinjar) and other Kurdish areas invaded by the Islamic State (IS) as genocide.
On November 13, 2015, Peshmerga forces, with air support from the international coalition aircraft, freed Shingal and expelled IS from the city.
