40,000 Iraqis forced to flee IS are now dying on Sinjar mountain

原刊於Christianity Today,2014年8月7日

An estimated 40,000 Iraqis are stranded on a mountainside in northern Iraq without food, water or sanitation, having been forced out of their homes by IS militants.

The United Nations has received reports that 40 children have already died directly as a result of violence, displacement and dehydration, while 25,000 more minors are thought to be among those still suffering.

Those seeking safety on the mountain are members of religious minority groups from the Sinjar city area, which was taken over by the Islamic State over the weekend.
