Sulaimani: Iraqi Kurdistan Parliament Speaker Yusuf Mohammed Sadiq said present circumstances in Iraqi Kurdistan require cooperation between the region’s political parties due to the crises facing the region and the war with the Islamic State (IS). Mohammed received a delegation from the Kurdistan National Congress (KNK) headed by co-leader Rebwar Rashid on Sunday in Sulaimani to discuss the relationship between Kurdish groups. Mohammed said Peshmerga forces and Syrian Kurdish fighters are protecting Kurdish areas in the fight against IS militants, adding it was important to achieve “unity between all political parties.” “These circumstances require all parties to join together,” Mohammed said. KNK co-leader Rashid said political parties should respect the legitimacy of Kurdistan’s Parliament, which he referred to as a “home” to all parties. “The deactivation of parliament serves the enemies of the Kurdistan Region,” Rashid said. “All parties should respect the legitimacy of parliament.”

Erbil: An organization dedicated to bringing a case of genocide against the Islamic State to the International Criminal Court (ICC) has launched an appeal for evidence of the crimes committed against the Yazidi population. “It is urgent that the Yazidi community works together in seeking justice. We are much more powerful when we support each other,” reads an appeal shared by the organization It’s On U. “A concerted effort will not only put considerable pressure on the international community to recognize the ongoing genocide, but refocus any engagement in terms of the humanitarian crisis and, in particular, the lasting safety and welfare of the Yazidi community.”

Erbil: The Kurdistan Democratic Party of Kurdistan of Turkey (KDP-North) which is affiliated to Massoud Barzani’s KDP is holding its three-day long congress in Iraqi Kurdistan Region’s capital city of Erbil. “KDP-North holds its 11th congress in Erbil,” Seid Cicek, a member of PDK-North’s politburo, told Rudaw on Saturday. “We hold our congress in freed Kurdistan,” Cicek continued, “because according to Turkish law, our party is not an authorized entity in Turkey.” According to Cicek, the situations in all parts of Kurdistan will be discussed at the congress and the party’s program will be adopted to reflect the new situation of the region and to strengthen the party in northern Kurdistan (Kurdish area of Turkey). The KDP-North congress comes at a time when a delegation from the Group of Communities of Kurdistan [KCK] met with Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran [PDK-I] officials in Sulaimani in Saturday. |

[size=13]Preparations underway to mark second anniversary of Shingal genocide[/size]
Erbil: Several events will be held next week in Shingal to commemorate the assault on the city and the subsequent genocide against its Yazidi population on August 3, 2104, according to the organizers of the events. Songs, music and theatrical performances have already been rehearsed on locations in Shingal to depict and relive the atrocities that were perpetrated by Islamist assassins against the largely defenseless Yazidi population in the city and its surrounding villages.  “I don’t know what to feel,” says Kazhin Ismail, a Yazidi performer who has prepared several acts and dances ahead of the events next week. “It is the day when they took our girls and killed our men in front of our eyes,” she says. The events, which will be aired live on TV and radio next Wednesday, include stories told by the survivors and performed by artists. Arrangers say over 100 actors and performers are planned to take part in the events with diverse activities.
