The stranded Yazidi refugees trapped on Sinjar Mountain in northern Iraq are finally being rescued.
They’ve been stranded for more than a week with little food and water after Islamic State fighters, also known as ISIS, forced them from their homes.
Syrian Kurdish fighters have come to the rescue, carving out a pathway to safety for the Yazidis.
Weak and dehydrated, some of the Yazidis have made it safely to a refugee camp just inside Syria. Many needed immediate medical attention. One little girl’s feet blistered from the long, shoeless journey up and down the mountain.
