On Wednesday, Nobel Peace Prize winner Nadia Murad has said that the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is a raid in the United States over the weekend wasn’t enough to compensate for the atrocities committed by the ISIS group.
Ms. Murad has survived three months of captivity at the hands of ISIS in Iraq in 2014, has said that “we don’t want to just see ISIS, like Baghdadi, just get killed.”
She became a voice for the minority Yazidis, founded an organization to help women and children been victimized by genocide, human trafficking, and mass atrocities.
In 2018, Nadia Murad was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize along with Denis Mukwege for their efforts to eliminate the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war.
In 2014, ISIS has seized large swaths of Syria and Iraq, has established a caliphate under al-Baghdadi that has since collapsed under the US-led offensive.
Ms. Murad told sources at the United Nations that she had spoken to several Yazidi survivors about the death of al-Baghdadi.
Their reply, she informed was “Okay, but this is just Baghdadi. What about all ISIS (fighters)? They still have our girls, children. What about the thousands of Yazidis still missing?”
“There are thousands of ISIS-like Baghdadi and they are ready to do what he did, and they already did and they are not giving up. So we want to see more, we want to see them in justice,” added Ms. Murad.
