Baghdad has seen similar assaults against members of religious minorities, including Yazidis, Christians and Sabean Mandeans, but security authorities often declare such kind of acts to be criminal in nature and not motivated by sectarianism which more commonly ongoing in Iraq.
Yazidi community in Iraq has been subjected to widespread violence since 2014 and even before widespread violence of Yazidis have been started since 2003, many of them flee to outside of Iraq, with many resettling to Europe, Australia, Canada and the United States, because Iraq becomes a nightmare for minorities in terms of security.
