During the summer of 2014 the Islamic State (IS) seized the Sinjar district of Ninewa province. Afterward they singled out the local Yazidi population for mass execution and slavery (http://musingsoniraq.blogspot.com/2014/09/islamic-states-destruction-of-iraqs.html). IS would go into a village, separate the men from women, take the males away and shoot them, while ferrying the females to different parts of the province or Syria to be used for sex, slavery or marriage to fighters. Later in the year Kurdish and Yazidi forces retook the area. Recently there have been reports of Yazidi and Turkish Kurds taking revenge on Arabs they blame for collaborating with IS.
