Nadia Murad: Compensation of farmers in Sinjar

12/6/2019 13:33:00

Nadia Murad, the United Nations Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations, called on federal and provincial governments to conduct an investigation into the fires in Sinjar, pointing to the need to protect mass graves.


Murad said in a statement on Wednesday: Neyarat had devoured farmers' crops, which are a vital source of them, and burned mass graves containing evidence of genocide against the Yazidis.


She added: "It is essential that the federal and provincial governments respond urgently to the protection of mass graves that are evidence of genocide against Yazidis in Sinjar and that those affected by the fires should be compensated."


The Yazidis continue to suffer daily because of the failure to address the problem of the local government of Sinjar. Five years later, they are still in the displacement camps and the 80,000 who have returned to their homes in Sinjar live without basic needs or without a local government.
