Operation Humanity and Security 3 | The YPJ Liberated a Yazidi Woman from ISIS in al-Hol camp

As part of the ongoing Operation Humanity and Security 3 in the al-Hol camp, the Women’s Protection Units (YPJ) managed to liberate a Yazidi woman from ISIS captivity. The woman is called Kovan Aidi Khourto and was born in the village of Hardan in the Shangal region. Kovan was among thousands of Yazidi girls and women kidnapped by ISIS during the Shangal/Sinjar massacre committed by ISIS against the Yazidi religious minority in the Shangal area on August 3, 2014.  It is worth mentioning that ISIS kidnapped more than 5,000 Yazidi women from Shangal during its brutal attack on the region in August 2014. Most of them were sold in the ISIS slave markets in Syria and Iraq. Our forces, the Syrian Democratic Forces, managed to liberate hundreds of Yazidi women from ISIS, especially after defeating ISIS in al-Bagouz.
