Kurdish Peshmerga forces found a mass grave near Shingal on Sunday which they believe contains the remains of Yezidi Kurdish men killed by ISIS militants in 2014.
At least 15-20 men are believed to have been buried there. They were executed by Islamic State (ISIS) militants when they took over the town.
Since Shingal's liberation by the Peshmerga last November several other mass graves have been found in and around the city where many Yezidi men and women have been buried.
Hundreds of Yezidi Kurds were killed, thousands abducted and tens of thousands more displaced from Shingal and the Nineveh plains.
Kurdish officials and human rights organizations have started various campaigns to win recognition for the Shingal massacres by ISIS as genocide.
