DUHOK, Kurdistan Region – Two Yezidi girls were rescued in Mosul on Monday.
 
“One of them is 10 years of age and is from the village of Kocho, and the other one is 7 years old and is from the village of Ardan,” Amin Khalal from the Kurdistan Regional Government’s office for rescuing Yezidis, told Rudaw.

They are expected to reunite with their families today in the city of Duhok, he added. 

On Sunday, Nineveh police announced the rescue of a 6-year old girl in Mosul.

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.
