DUHOK, Kurdistan Region — Yassir Haidar was born without legs. He has lived in an IDP camp in Duhok since his homeland of Shingal was overrun by ISIS in 2014.
He recently got married.
"It’s a nice day for me today, it’s my wedding. I am very pleased and happy," he said.
He married Wahida who is an ISIS survivor. The wedding party was emotional as she pushed Yassir in a wheelchair in the bridal salon.
"I thank God very much, as He blessed us with this happiness. I see my son with disabilities getting married," said Yassir father's Haidar.
Yezidi youth funded the party in a wedding hall in Duhok.
"I see a new world with Yassir is getting married. I am happier today than at my brother’s wedding," added Haidar.
