81 mass graves of Yazidis found in Iraq’s Sinjar since 2014

The KRG Deputy Minister said two mass graves were found two weeks ago in the Hardan village in Sinjar, and several bodies were exhumed and sent to Baghdad for DNA analysis and identification.

The Sinjar district was captured by the Daesh terrorist group in 2014 and, in 2015, the PKK terror organisation managed to establish a foothold in the area. A total of 81 mass graves of Yazidis have been found in Sinjar district in northern Iraq since 2014.
