In 2014, ISIS launched a genocide campaign against Yazidis in Sinjar district and the areas where Yazidis resided in Baaj district. ISIS killed thousands of Yazidi men, abducted more than six thousand women and girls and used them for sex slavery, and more than half a million Yazidis were forcibly displaced from their homeland. ISIS did not only attempt to annihilate the Yazidis. But destroyed the infrastructure of their areas to ensure that Yazidis will never return and make a demographic alteration on earth.
