ERBIL— In a near future some 400 Yezidi women and children will be sent to Romania for receiving psychotherapy in the country, said the mayor of Yezidi dominated town of Sinjar.
Mahma Khalil told BasNews on Saturday that the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and the Romanian government have signed two contracts, each for six-month term, so that people who have been liberated from Islamic State (IS) captivity be treated in Romania.
The 400 people, who have been named by the office of the abducted Yezidi affairs, will return to their home after completing the course of the therapy.
Thousands of Yezidi women, young girls and children were kidnapped by the IS once the extremists occupied Yezidi areas in Nineveh province in 2014.
The people were treated as sex slaves in the IS markets and thus many women were transferred hand to hand to new owners in IS-held areas in Iraq and even Syria.
Different regions of Germany have already hosted hundreds of Yezidi women who are suffering from the shocks of their rape as well as the killing of their beloved ones by IS militants.
