September 2020, Sinjar City, Northern Iraq: Sinjar City is where the epicenter of genocide by ISIS was taking place in 2014 against the Yazidi's, a small minority of people that speak Kurdish and follow the World's oldest known Monotheistic Religion, Zoroastrianism. President Obama ordered airstrikes on ISIS in 2014.
Today, six years later, I am in Sinjar City to shine a light on the current situation. I find a city which lays in ruins and looks like ISIS just left yesterday. The difficult situation of the Yazidi people today is unbelievable. Most are still homeless and missing family members. The graffiti tells the real story.
