ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Iraqi forces rescued a Yezidi child in Mosul, a police commander told Rudaw. 

The six-year old girl “doesn’t know anything about her relatives,” said Nineveh Police Commander Wathiq al-Hamdani. 
 
“On Sunday, the forces of the third regiment of the Nineveh emergency police rescued a Yezidi child near the Intisar neighborhood on the left bank of Mosul,” Hamdani detailed.
 
He said her name is Sruya Saido and they have contacted Yezidi authorities and relevant organizations to help identify the child’s family.
 
As of early July, figures from the Kurdistan Region show that some 3,050 Yezidis had been rescued from ISIS captivity since August 2014, of whom 1,622 are children. 

Some 3,400 are still believed to be under ISIS captivity.
