Iraqi Yazidi MP Breaks Down in Parliament: ISIL is Exterminating my People
Published 6 years ago
Iraqi Kurdish MP from the ancient Yazidi faith, Vian Dakhil, gave a very emotional appeal in the Iraqi Parliament while in tears to rescue the Yazidis of Iraq from being exterminated by the Wahhabi terrorist group, the Islamic State, which is formerly known as the "Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant" (ISIL).
She states that 500 Yazidi men have been slaughtered by ISIL and that Yazidi women are being taken as slaves and sold in the slave market. She also mentions that ISIL is besieging the Sinjar Mountain, where 30,000 Yazidi families reside, while depriving them of food and water.
The Yazidis are a Kurdish ethno-religious community, representing an ancient religion that is linked to Zoroastrianism. They live primarily in the Nineveh province of northern Iraq.
