Baghdad, 3 August 2017

Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

Three years ago, on 3 August 2014, the Takfiri terrorist group ISIL swept into Sinjar, directly targeting civilians, killing and enslaving them, and triggering a massive displacement of civilians. From 4 to 8 August 2014, nearly 200,000 people fled to safe areas. Tens of thousands of others took refuge on Sinjar Mountain where they were besieged by ISIL in dire situation of critical shortage of water, food, shelter, and health services. Information at the time indicated that casualties included many children who may have died on the Mountain as a result of exposure and lack of medical treatment.
