132 Yazidis will be re-settled in France

Relief Web reports “One hundred thirty-two members of Iraq’s Yazidi community left Erbil International Airport today (22/05) for Toulouse, France, the latest resettlement effort by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), part of the Humanitarian Admissions Programme launched by President Emmanuel Macron.”

This is important but it is also the least countries like this can do after hundreds of their citizens joined ISIS. Many wealthy countries have done little to protect or help rebuild the lives of Yazidis in Iraq. Almost 3,000 are still missing. Germany has done the most of European countries, with Canada and Australia also stepping in. Now France’s modest program will assist a 132 people. However hundreds of thousands remain in IDP camps.
