An Old Yazidi Woman’s Lament about Massacred Civilians

Dayika Êzîdî piştî giheştina Rojava

A Yezidi woman is telling her sad story after she arrived Rojava

This elderly Yezidi woman, after arriving to Kurdish Syria, known as Rojava, is telling reporters about what happened to other Yezidis in Sinjar. 

This unfortunate woman tells her tragedy with a lament rather than speaking, a common way of mourning in Kurdish culture.

Other women cannot help crying and the journalist cannot continue interviewing because of tears… 

There are now thousands of Yezidi civilians near Derik (Malikiyah) city of Rojava staying in Camp Newroz which was prepared by local Kurdish Jazira Canton
