YBŞ and Iraqi army launch joint operation against ISIS

The operation is participated by YBŞ, Iraqi military and police forces.

Shengal Resistance Units (YBŞ) and the Iraqi army and police have launched a joint operation against ISIS in some areas of Shengal.

According to reports, the operation involves the village of Neêniyê and Golate. More details about the joint campaign were not immediately available.

ISIS gangs launched a wave of genocidal attacks against Shengal on 3 August 2014, slaughtering a great number of civilians and kidnapping as many as 5 thousand Yazidi girls, women and boys.

HPG guerrillas and YPG/YPJ fighters that rushed to Shengal rescued tens of thousands.
