Yazidi Women Clear ‘IS’ Landmines From Iraq’s Sinjar

When the ‘Islamic State’ attacked the Yazidi community in Sinjar in northwestern Iraq in 2014, it planted hundreds of thousands of landmines and other explosive devices in homes, buildings and fields that remained when the ‘IS’ was pushed out of Sinjar in 2017.

The documentary ‘Into the Fire’ shines light on a group of Yazidi women who undertake the high-risk task of demining the explosives with help from the UK’s Mines Advisory Group. (📹: DW News)
