YBŞ: We don't need any other force in Shengal

The Shengal Resistance Units (YBŞ), which defeated ISIS in Shengal and protected the Yazidi land highlights the fact that Shengal does not need any other force.

The town of Shengal (Sinjar) in Southern Kurdistan (Northern Iraq), which was subjected to an intense attack by ISIS gangs on August 3, 2014, has become one of the most important matters of the Kurds in recent days.

This time the Shengal people are facing the threat of the KDP, who left the Yazidis alone in the face of ISIS attacks in 2014 and fled even without looking back.

After the attack of ISIS gangs in 2014, Yazidi men and women formed YBŞ and YJŞ because of the need for a force composed of Yazidis.

YBŞ and YJŞ forces played a major role in the liberation of Shengal and freed the people captured by ISIS gangs. The YBŞ and YJŞ, which have protected Shengal from attacks and threats since the day it was founded, have been faced with the defamation policies of the KDP especially recently.

With these smear policies, the KDP aims to destroy regional forces and the forces loyal to the Iraqi government. Speaking to ANF, YBŞ fighters said that the YBŞ and YJŞ were the outcry of Yazidi mothers and children. The fighters pointed out that the YBŞ and YJŞ have defended Shengal since the onslaught by ISIS gangs, and stated that the YBŞ and YJŞ have the capacity to defend and protect the region and that they do not need any other force.
