IF Statement on Anniversary of Yazidi Genocide


As the world marked the anniversary this week of the horror that struck the Yazidi community, 2 years later their suffering still continues. According to the UN, over 3,200 Yazidi women and children remain in captivity of ISIS. IF echos the words of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to call upon the world to help end these atrocious acts and bring justice to all of those responsible.

The Yazidi’s have faced unimaginable crimes against their very existence and the world must not forget what it has seen to ensure that nothing of this nature ever happens again. To those working to bring these people home, we urge for nothing but your continued devotion to this desperate cause. To the Yazidi people themselves, we stand with you and will continue to do so until justice is served.

Statement Attributable to the Spokesman for the Secretary-General on the second anniversary of Sinjar’s tragedy _ United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
