People in five Yezidi villages are building barricades around their communities in anticipation of more attacks, sources in Nineveh said.
Yezidi communities were targeted by suicide bombers recently. Coordinated bombings last week killed 21 and wounded more than 30 people. The five villages (20 miles north of Mosul) colleted money from residents to build the barricades, a Yezidi spokesman said.
The spokesman added that “Each village will have one point of entry and twenty guards to watch the barricades surrounding the villages…this plan was made hours after rumors spread of imminent attacks here following the bombings in Sinjar, Shalej and Khazna”.
