A very emotinal Report from AAS (Assyrian Aid), Dohuk – 06.08.2014


Assyrian Aid (AAS) in Dohuk ist eine der Hifsorganisationen, mit denen wir seit Jahren zusammenarbeiten. 
Ich bekam diesen Bericht vor einer Stunde. Mir fehlen die Worte!

Dears,

Here is our report and some of our testimony concerning the events happening now in North of Iraq.

It is a tragic situation, nobody can imagine how terrible it is, as much as I write to you and send 

you reports it will not be enough to describe the suffering of people.

For Zummar and Sinjar: 

they are under Da'esh control, thousands of Yizides died in the last two days,
they are facing a real genocide. till yesterday (45) child died of thirst. Some families throw their
children from the top of Sinjar mountain inorder not to see them die from hunger or thirst, or not to
be taken by the terrorists. (1500) men were killed in front of their wives and families, (50) old men
died also from thirst and illness. more than (70) girl and women (including christians) were taken,
raped and being captured and sold. More than (100) families are captured in Tel afer airport.

 There is about (50) christian families in Sinjar. The terrorists were able to control the Syriac church
there and cover the Cross with their black banner. Till now we do not know anything about those
Christian families. 

For Nineveh Plain:

As a reason to the continuous bombing on Telkeif, Deacon (Lujain Hikmat Nano) died, most of the families
left their houses and would leave one member of the family in the house, but this tragic led to an exodus
from Telkeif. the same thing happened in Shekhan and the surrounded villages (shekhan center, Karanjo,
Dashqotan and Ein biqri).
Ba'ashiqa: an exodus from there because there was boming and battles near Ba'ashiqa as the terrorists are
trying to control that area too. Ba'ashiqa Monastory is being evacuated from the inhabitants and from IDPs.
Ein Sifni: an exodus of the Yizides families which forced the christian families to flee too.
Mosul Falls are now under the control of the terrorist, these fall are about (10-15 Km) from Ein sifni.
Batnaye and Tellisquf: also an exodus because of the threats and bad circumestances they are going through.

Duhok:

Our Dorm, the empty houses in the villages, the halls of the churches, school and mosques are full of IDPs
and in a very bad conditions. I cannot give you the exact number of those families. Also it is very hard to
describe their needs in food basckets only, on one can imagine this tragedy, one may cry to see those people
in this situation.

Concerning Zakho and Center Duhok: till now they are under the KRG control.

pls excuse my chaotic writing and expression, we are all in a bad situation.

So, according to my above report, you can decide what kind of aid you can offer.

regards,
Christina
