[size=31]DUHOK, Kurdistan region ‘Iraq’,—The Directorate of Yazidi Abductees Affairs in Dohuk province in Iraq’s Kurdistan Region reported on Saturday that near 3,000 Kurdish Yazidi children were left orphans as a result of the atrocities conducted against Yazidis by Islamic State (IS) militants in Sinjar (Shingal).[/size]
[size=31]Hussein Kuru, director of the Office, which works to locate and free Yazidi captives, said that 2,745 children of both sexes at different ages have been orphaned due to the IS attack against the Yazidi-majority town of Sinjar in August, 2014, where the militants killed and abducted thousands of Yazidis, men, women and children.[/size]
[size=31]Kuru explained that the number of children who have lost only one parent is 2,166 and there are 359 children who have lost both parents.[/size]

[size=31]There are also 220 children whose parents are still held captive by IS militants.[/size]
[size=31]Kuru called on international humanitarian organizations to help those children since they’re leading a miserable life and suffering from severe financial and psychological problems.[/size]
[size=31]Sinjar came under a large-scale offensive by IS militants on August 3, 2014 after the terrorist group overrun Mosul in northern Iraq.[/size]
[size=31]Kurdish officials previously stated that nearly half of the 5,000 Yazidi abducted women have so far been rescued or they managed to escape the grip of extremists.[/size]

[size=31]Islamic State group has captured most parts of the Yazidi Sinjar (Shingal) district in northwest Iraq on August 3, 2014 which led thousands of Kurdish families to flee to Mount Sinjar, where they were trapped in it and suffered from significant lack of water and food, killing and abduction of thousands of Yazidis as well as rape and captivity of thousands of women.[/size]
[size=31]Those who stay behind are subjected to brutal, genocidal acts: thousands killed, hundreds buried alive, and countless acts of rape, kidnapping and enslavement are perpetuated against Yazidi women. To add insult to injury, IS fighters ransack and destroy ancient Yazidi holy sites.[/size]
[size=31]According to the United Nations Islamic State enslaved an estimated 7,000 women and girls in 2014, mainly the Kurdish Yazidi women and children, and is still holding 3,500 as slaves.[/size]
