It has been announced that an agreement on security and administrative issues in Sinjar district is signed yesterday between the Iraqi Central Government and the KRG.

We hope this agreement to be carried out in a way that would enable the re-instating the control of the Iraqi authorities in Sinjar, the eradication of DAESH and PKK terrorist organizations and their extensions in the region and ensuring the safe return to their ancestral lands of Ezidis and the other people of the region who have been subject to grave oppression and persecution of first DAESH and then of PKK.
