Two Yazidi children, who had been abducted by ISIS terrorists, have returned to the Kurdistan Region. The two siblings, a boy and a girl, travelled with the Kurdistan Region delegation headed by President Nechirvan Barzani as it arrived back to Erbil from an official visit to the Turkish capital Ankara. Upon arrival at the Erbil International Airport, the two children reunited with their family and relatives.
For more than three years, the Office of Yazidi Abductees’ Affairs, established by President Nechirvan Barzani, put intense efforts into finding the two children. With the help of good samaritans and relevant authorities of the government of Turkey, the office managed to locate the two children and return them to their family in the Kurdistan Region.
The Kurdistan Region Presidency thanked everyone who helped find the children and solve their case. President Nechirvan Barzani also expressed gratitude to the relevant authorities of the Kurdistan Regional Government and the Republic of Turkey for their prompt assistance in finalizing the necessary paperwork and legal procedures in time for them to return to the Kurdistan Region with his delegation.
