According to the statements of eyewitnesses, around 200 families unable to flee the horrific acts of the ISIS gangs remained stranded in the Kocho village where among these men and elder were massacred while girls and women were forced into cars and taken somewhere else after radical Islamist gangs threatened the people “either to covert into Muslim or to die”.

Hundreds of thousands of people have been forced to leave their homes and lands after Sinjar was taken by ISIS on 3 August. Read more

2014 August 15Firat News: 4 people from Sinjar die in Rojava hospital

4 people from Sinjar, including a 4-month-old baby, who became ill after 7 days of hunger and thirst on Mount Sinjar, died today in a hospital in Derik, West Kurdistan (Rojava).

The four people were taken to the hospital in Derik (Malikiya) after spending a week on Mount Sinjar having fled from the barbarity of ISIS gangs.

One of them was a 4-month-old baby, the others a 60-year-old woman, and two men aged 55 and 56.

The son of 56-year-old Biro Eto from the village of Til Ezer in Sinjar, Sadiq Eto, said that his father passed away because his kidneys had dried up. Eto said: “I wish God to call those people who call themselves Islamists to account. Thank God, my father lost his life on the order of God, not in the hands of ISIS gangs. My father was thirsty during 7 days in the mountains. His kidneys dried up. He was also a cardiac patient. Then, we carried him for 4 days until we found a car. May the things that happened to us never happen to other people.” Read more
