Minority communities in Iraq have been targeted by the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) in a systematic strategy to remove them permanently from large areas of Iraq, warns a group of human rights organizations in their new report.

 

“Between the Millstones:  Iraq’s Minorities Since the Fall of Mosul” provides critical information on the legal basis for war crimes prosecutions.

 

The report is a joint publication of the Institute for International Law and Human Rights (IILHR), Minority Rights Group International (MRG), No Peace Without Justice (NPWJ) and the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO)
