Yazda Second Report on the Mass Grave Excavations in Kocho (Sinjar)

From 12 April 2019 to 28 April 2019, 11 mass graves were excavated in Kocho bringing the total number of excavated sites to 12 since 15 March 2019. Yazda documentation team monitored the process and answered the questions of the families.

The process is believed to restart in the coming days but the schedule might change due to devastating wildfires in Sinjar. The fires damaged two mass graves so far, one in Hamadan and one in Kocho.

Yazda calls upon the Iraqi authorities to protect these graves, especially the surface remains where bones are apparent and are burning, leading to evidence loss.
