The third of August marks the fifth anniversary of Daesh mercenaries' attack: the 74 Genocide, where they massacred thousands of Yazidis and kidnapped 5,000 Yezidi children and women. They were sold in markets in various areas occupied by Syria and Iraq such as Raqqa, Deir Al-Zour, and Mosul.
By the fifth anniversary of the massacre, a reporter of Hawar News Agency met with Aisha Jafo, deputy co-chair of the General Council of the Democratic Autonomous Administration of North-East Syria, she denounced the massacre on her people in 3 August 2014 by Daesh mercenaries.
Aisha said at the beginning that the mercenaries' attack is a representative of the attack of authoritarian countries that targeted the spectra and religions in the region, especially the Kurdish people.
Aisha said that when Daesh mercenaries attacked, they targeted women, because women are the ones who create and organize life and society, so they targeted the woman in the first place and practiced the worst crimes of murder and rape against her, as well as the kidnapping of thousands of women.
"With the support of the People's Defense Forces and the People's and Women's Protection Units for the Yazidi people and we have rid ourselves of Daesh terror, the Yazidis have been able to stand on their feet again and reorganize themselves, and have worked to form their military strength so that they can protect their society." she concluded.
