Deputy Rustam Bakoyan wrote on his Facebook page: “By the decision of the Government of Iraq, a Reconstruction Committee has been established for the reconstruction of the Shangali (Sinjari) district and US$ 19 million has been allocated for the reconstruction of the district.” We want to remind you that in 2014-2015, IS militants committed mass killings of the Yezidi population of Sinjar (genocide-ed.). Small communities of Christians (in particular, Assyrians, as well as a small number of Armenian families) also live in this region in northern Iraq. Despite the difficulties, they do not leave their homes.
