Thousands Of Iraqi Yazidis take refuge in Syria and Peshmerga rescue several from the Mountains

Thousands of Iraqi Yazidis who fled from a part of ISIS controlled to the mountains in Iraq have entered Syria - mostly in government and YPG held areas where they are receiving care and are safe from the ISIS militants. Syria has been engulfed in violence since 2011 and Iraq has recently seen a surge in violence between ISIS forces against Peshmerga forces, the Mahdi army and the Iraqi Armed forces.

In Iraq, Yazidis also received aid in the Kurdish part of Iraq.  There were also a number of Christians who were also arriving in Syria to seek refuge from the savage militants.
