Êzidî mothers: Barzani sold Shengal out to Erdoğan
Regarding the KDP attack on Shengal, Êzidî mothers said: “Barzani has sold us out once again. KDP sold us out to ISIS first, and to Erdoğan now. We will fight the KDP until one single Êzidî remains alive.”
Speaking to ANF, mothers in Shengal responded to the KDP attack on Shengal, saying: “Barzani sold us out once again. KDP sold us out to ISIS first, and to Erdoğan now. We will fight the KDP until one single Êzidî remains alive and we will not allow the Barzani gangs to enter our lands. With these attacks, they want to finalize the 73rd genocide against Êzidîs.”
Mother Xezal Sılo remarked that these attacks have reminded them of ISIS, saying: "The peshmergas deployed here are gangs. We are afraid that these gangs will kidnap our women just like the ISIS did back then. The arrival of these gangs in our land is not for our benefit, it is rather aimed to harm us and to finalize the 73rd massacre. What peshmergas are doing now is a shame, a betrayal. We do not want the peshmergas to consolidate their power over our lands."
Recalling the ISIS attack of 3 August, 2014, Xezal Sılo stated the followings: "They want to kidnap our women and kill our men as they did on 3 August. We do not trust the peshmerga and Barzani anymore, even if only one Êzidî remains alive. If the peshmergas really want to protect us, they should liberate our 10 villages to the north of Mount Shengal that are still held by ISIS."
Another mother from Shengal, Berfê Îlyas asked the following questions to the KDP: "Where were you while our women and girls were kidnapped by ISIS? Why did you leave us and flee then, do you remember us only now? The biggest gang is the KDP peshmergas. We, young and old alike, will carry out self-defense, and we will not allow the peshmergas to enter our lands as long as we live."
Berfê Îlyas stressed that Êzidîs are not the Êzidîs of the past anymore, saying: "We, all the mothers, children, youths and women are organized and trained now. We took many lessons from this massacre and we as women will defend ourselves. Barzani and Erdoğan has made a deal over us, just like Barzani and ISIS did in 2014. Barzani and Erdoğan want to finalize the 73rd massacre of Êzidîs. Barzani has once again sold Shengal out, to Erdoğan. However, we will not allow the gangs of Barzani to advance one single step into our soil this time."
