OK

I have just checked some regional media and they report that between 10,000 and 25,000 Yazidis have been rescued from Mount Shingal today.

The Syrian Kurds and the Peshmerga opened routes from the mountain to areas on the Syrian side of the border which are under the control of the Syrian Kurds to make this rescue possible.

The mountain is 40 km long and there are still an unknown number of people on the mountain.

There are also other reports that ISIS(IS) is approaching Kirkuk and the Peshmerga are heavily fortifying areas south of the city.
