The president of Assyrian Aid Society Iraq Ashur Sargon Eskrya was one of the speakers at the Assyrian Convent last October in Gütersloh. He described the oppression against the Assyrians in Iraq in general and in KRG in specific. The indigenous Assyrians are targeted by Kurdish rulers with land grab, demographic changes and forced identity changes.
The only solution is that an administrative area is created in the Nineveh Plains as an own province with international protection and an Assyrian autonomy within the KRG, he says. The applies to the Yazidis of Shigor (Sinjar), he adds.
