  • Over 100 thousand Yezidis and other minorities are currently living in a very awful circumstances in Khank village. They have no access to services and facilities, making them subject to huge risks especially women and children. Hizawa and Diraboun villages in Zakho shelter huge number of displaced people who are not receiving any aid.
  • Followers of the events in Mosul and other cities and towns warned against tricky attempts by the terrorists to show forged humanitarian behavior. Cancer hospital in Mosul witnessed one such attempt when the terrorists forced patient children to raise Daesh flag and publish it in the media. Terrorists also claimed that they have pardoned Christians as if Christians were criminals and  those terrorists are angels of mercy authorized by Heaven to pardon them, while in reality they are merciless killers.
  • Most Yezidis are desperate and hopeless. They see no salvation in the future. That’s why they are requesting for help to migrate abroad because they think even in future they might be subjected to the same massacre.

  • Shortage of  places for sheltering displaced people. All halls, churches, social and religious centres are full and no longer able to receive more displaced people.
  • Military activities to liberate Nineveh leas and Sinjar are slow and  not fast moving giving the impression to the displaced that their situation will worsen and no hope to return home soon.

  • US consulate in Erbil was reluctant to the demands of the clergymen who demonstrated before the consulate on 11 august 2014.  Religious leaders ,Archbishop  Mar  Johana Moshi and Archbishop Goergis and Priest Moses were desperate from US consulate stance towards thousands of AL-Qosh people who knew their calamity would not be solved sooner.
  • International  relief operations are below required levels needed by thousands of Yezidis and Christians in Kurdistan.
  • Displaced families are financially incapable of meeting their needs and they are unable to follow up their petitions to receive their financial grant submitted by the federal government.
  • Displaced people situation is worsening due to slow relief operations in Duhok and Erbil. Slow  military operations in Nineveh leas is also contributing to further worsening their situation.  It also increased peoples’ worry about their property and  future as the terrorists are invading their homes.

  • Displaced Christian in Ankawa and Erbil are complaining of attempts to push them out of the churches to camps prepared to them by  UN in cooperation with the Independent Human Rights commission of Kurdistan.  This further worsen  their situation and impose further psychological pressure on them.
  • At least one death among displaced is registered in Erbil. So far, 5 deaths are documented due to the difficult situation of the displaced.

  • Shortage of camps in Duhok to shelter thousands of Yezidsi who are forced to find shelter in unfinished buildings.
  • Many displaced are forced to buy commercial fuel in Erbil and Dohuk due to shortage of subsidized fuel which is unaffordable by them.
  • Some residents of Mosul complained from the unbearable situation in the city through phone calls. Complains from the armed terrorists is on the high and young men are ready to join any movement to liberate Mosul from the terrorists.
