The public resistance by the people of Sinjar (Şengal) against the agreement signed between the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and the Iraqi government continues on its 103rd day.
The vigil action supporting the Yazidi Asayish forces remains outside the Asayish Centre in Sinjar.
Locals visited the vigil to express their support. Guhbel Town Council co-chair Emer Parsû said “We will resist all attempts to remove our will”.
Parsû also condemned assaults by Iraq and Turkey, which he said are encouraged by the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP).
The agreement between the Iraq government and the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), which was signed on 9 October, and the deployment of more than 8,000 soldiers to Sinjar provoked strong reactions. At the same time, tension in the region soared after the attempt to remove Yazidi Asayish Centres (Yazidi public security forces).
As the Sinjar Democratic Autonomous Assembly (MXŞD) reacted against the agreement, local citizens launched a vigil action against both the agreement and the removal of Yazidi Asayish forces.
