Power vacuum in Iraq’s Sinjar prevents Yazidi refugees’ return

Around 200,000 Yazidis have little choice but to live in poorly equipped camps in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq.

The defeat of the ISIL in the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar in 2015 has left a power vacuum.

The area is rife with various armed groups vying for control and the lack of agreement among them has prevented thousands of people from the minority Yazidi community from returning home.
