Ezidi resistance fighters tell ezidiPress editors in a phone conversation that ISIS terrorists have again surrounded Mount Sinjar, threatening thousands of people still located there. According to the fighters, over 7,000 people were remaining in the mountains because they rejected to leave their home and villages behind. Being surrounded by ISIS, their situation seems to deteriorate as Sinjar´s Protection Units themselves had to withdraw to Mount Sinjar.

Washington Post

Islamic State seizes two Yazidi villages as it advances on Mount Sinjar
By Loveday Morris and Mustafa Salim

Islamic State militants advanced on Mount Sinjar on Monday, seizing two villages and blocking roads as besieged fighters from the minority Yazidi sect pleaded for U.S.-led airstrikes to save them.

Yazidi volunteers who have been protecting the area for more than two months said they retreated from the villages north of the mountain after the extremists attacked in the early hours of Monday under the cover of bad weather. The Yazidis pulled back to a shrine on the mountain but said the militants were closing in — their armored vehicles visible just a few miles away.

“We have so little ammunition, and they are advancing,” said Khalid Qassim Shesho, a 44-year-old fighter trapped in the Sharfadin shrine on Sinjar. “I can see five Humvees without using binoculars. We need planes!”

The extremist gains around Mount Sinjar strike an embarrassing blow to the international campaign against the Islamic State. In August, President Obama authorized targeted airstrikes in Iraq to address the plight of thousands of Yazidis trapped there in the face of an initial militant onslaught.

The airstrikes have shown a limited ability to turn the tide against the extremists. In the western province of Anbar, the militants have seized territory and army bases, and they have the provincial capital in their sights. Overrunning Anbar would give the Islamic State a valuable perch from which to increasingly target Baghdad.

The Islamic State’s treatment of the Yazidis, considered polytheists by the militant group, has been more brutal than with other sects. Yazidi men have been slaughtered and hundreds of women captured, with the Islamic State recently admitting to buying and selling them as slaves.

The numbers of those stranded on Monday were unclear. Tens of thousands of Yazidis were displaced from the area during Islamic State’s August assault, but some remained behind in more-remote parts of the mountain that had not been seized. The Islamic State has now blocked roads that had provided an evacuation route for Yazidis stranded on the mountain with little food, water or shelter two months ago.

“We called asking for help with airstrikes, but nothing,” said Mohammad Khalil, a former Yazidi member of parliament who has been fighting alongside the 2,000-strong volunteer force in the area since late August. “Now we are all trapped, the fighters are trapped, the civilians are trapped.”

Ali Qassem, a 26-year-old from Bork, which fell Monday along with nearby Dohula, said about 300 people had remained in his village — home to 4,000 before the conflict.

He spoke from the Sharfadin shrine, where he said he was sheltering with 400 other volunteer fighters — all of whom were coming under mortar fire.

Kurdish forces also were attempting to help repel the Islamic State’s advances from an artillery position on the mountain, he said.

Vian Dakhil, a Yazidi member of the Baghdad parliament, claimed that as many as 2,000 people were trapped on the mountain on Monday.

“If Daesh reaches them, they will kill them all,” she said, using the Arabic acronym for the extremist group.

Haji Ghandour, another Yazidi lawmaker, said that although those forced to flee their villages on Monday were largely fighters, about 700 Yazidi families remain in the area, many encamped on Mount Sinjar.

“If the situation doesn’t change, we’ll see an event worse than in August,” he said.
