Masoud Barzani, head of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), has called for a joint effort action plan between Baghdad and Erbil to rehabilitate the city of Sinjar and facilitate the return of Yazidis displaced by ISIS.

In a statement released on Saturday, Barzani said, “Erbil and Baghdad need to work together to rebuild the city of Sinjar to provide a suitable foundation for displaced Yazidis to return to their home.”

“What happened to Yazidis at the hands of ISIS is a continuation of heart-rending adversaries the people of the Kurdistan Region have suffered throughout history,” he added, referring to the regime of Saddam Hussein's deadly Anfal campaign against the Kurds.

Barzani called for strengthening “local and international efforts to identify the attack on the ethnic minority as genocide, and to intensify the search to find and recover the kidnapped and missing Yazidis.”
