The Kurdish and Yazidi Genocides

The Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIS, ISIL or Daesh) carried out a genocide of Yazidis in the Sinjar area of northern Iraq in the mid-2010s.  The genocide led to the expulsion, flight and effective exile of the Yazidis from their ancestral lands in Upper Mesopotamia. In 1987 the Anfal campaign targeted Kurdish civilians.
