After recognizing the genocide of the Yazidis, a high-ranking German delegation visits Lalish


follow-up – Ezidi 24

A delegation from Germany’s foreign ministry on Friday visited the Lalish Temple of Yazidis to study ways to implement German parliament’s recent resolution to recognize the Islamic State’s (ISIS) crimes against the ethnoreligious group as “genocide.”

German parliament last week recognized the ISIS crimes against Yazidis as “genocide.”  The resolution by the Bundestag urges German courts to take more action against suspects involved in the crimes and to increase financial support for Yazidis.

Thousands of Yazidis fled their hometown of Shingal when ISIS attacked the district, mostly residing in the Kurdistan Region. Most of them have not returned due to insecurity and lack of basic services.

Germany has been an essential member of the global coalition against ISIS.
