Back in 2014 there was a news break concerning a group of Yazidis backed up to a mountain peak, surrounded by ISIS fighters bent on killing them.  It was news for a week or so. Do you know what ultimately happened to the Yazidis?   As they cling to the remnants of a small territory occupied they have for a few thousand years, they are faced with genocide. Considered “devil worshipers” by  the Iraqis, backed, (inconsistently), only by the equally besieged Kurds, they are a ongoing target of opportunity for the antagonistic Muslim populations. And remnants of ISIS are still targeting them for destruction.
