She was welcomed by her community.
#YazidiGenocide
21 Yezidis who escaped/rescued were welcomed by their relatives in shingal.
Most of them were children who lost their families and these children were used as fighters by IS after being brainwashed and forced to convert to Islam.

#YezidiGenocide survivors who was kidnapped with 77 members of her family: IS took us from shingal to Syria.
Men were separated from women and were killed.
Children were taken from their mothers and girls who aged over 7 years were also raped with all others.

Sinjar’s #Yazidis and their #Arab and #Kurdish Sunni neighbours lived in peace until 3 August 2014. The date is scrawled on the city’s ruins. It is seared in memory. On that day, ISIS militants and their local Sunni supporters overran the district and surrounding areas.

Massacres, forced conversions to #Islam, and kidnappings ensued. Militants took women and girls as sex slaves in a campaign of terror that #Yazidis describe as 74th attempt to annihilate them because of their faith.

Like others be4 them,ISIS followers regard Yazidis as devil-& sun-worshipping apostates. Yazidism is a closed religion that forbids converts,enforces a strict caste system,brands followers who abandon it infidels&prohibits intermarriage with non-Yazidis,reinforcing its insularity

1) on 03.08.2014 we were in Tel Azer we walked 3 hours escaping from ISIS till we arrived in AlKhabazia village near from Jadala beside shingal mountains. We crossed the Main Street to head to Soil Road Jadala direction .there we have seen cars and thought those are peshmerga.
2)we didn’t know that peshmerga have escaped that’s why we weren’t afraid.we looked at cars and suddenly they raised black banners and drove to us, they came from Shelo areas. ISIS surrounded us,we were about 200 people and asked to stop. Each one tried to run,was directly killed
