According to the Turkish Anadolu Agency under reference to a Kurdish official, a mass grave containing the remains of 35 Ezidis has been discovered in the northern Iraqi province of Mosul. The mass grave´s discovery took place after ISIS terrorists had been pushed back from several localities in Mosul as Peshmerga forces advanced under the cover of U.S. air strikes.
“The mass grave included the bodies of women and children,” said Said Memo, the Kurdistan Democratic Party´s spokesman, adding that the victims may have been killed during the terrorists´ advancement to Sinjar.
Another mass grave had been discovered near the Badush prison. As local Arab tribesmen reported, ISIS terrorists murdered and buried their prisoners there.
Since the terrorists´ onslaught on the Ezidis´ area of settlement in Sinjar, several mass graves have been discovered. People were partially buried alive.
