In August (2014) thousands of Yazidis were stranded on the mountain, after being forced from their homes by I.S. Taking back control of Sinjar would mean restoring much of the territory seized by IS from Iraqi Kurds in the last 6 months. Jiyar Gol has been on the front line with Kurdish forces in Sinjar.
