1. The proposed agreement in #Syria marks the final end of the #Ezidi minority. After #Afrin was occupied by #Turkey & its Islamists mercenaries, the same will now occupy the remaining villages in Syria. The #Yezidis remaining in Syria will be forced to flee.
2. Ironically, so far about 40 #Ezidi families from #Syria have been ethnically cleansed by #Turkey/#Islamists & fled to #Shingal in #Iraq; a region where the local #Yezidi population continues to suffer the genocide crimes committed by ISIS.
3. The #Ezidis have thus been expelled from almost their entire homeland in recent centuries (#Iran, #Turkey, #Syria). Only in #Iraq does a significant community still exist, but it has been emigrating increasingly for years.

ISIS fighters established a system for swx slavery that rape/enslavement of non Muslims is like worship.
Her husband is missing must probably killed @TarekFatah
IS fighters established a system of sexual slavery, claiming that the rape of non-Muslims was a form of worship. They set up markets in several towns where girls as young as nine were put up for auction to militants, with owners often trading women again online.
