May 2017 Report from Nineveh Plain
We were pleased to travel to the Nineveh Plain in May of 2017. I was pleasantly accompanied on this trip by Mrs. Dr. Mike. We were able to collect very relevant information on the challenges and encroachments facing Christians and Yezidis as they contemplate returning to their respective homes. There is a wide spectrum of home conditions ranging from complete destruction to looted and burned to fully intact and able to move in immediately.
All of the return of citizens will be subject to the restoration of basic civil services the most import of which is security. To that end we were honored to visit with and our friends in the NPU holding their ground in towns like Telskuf, Batnaya, Karmaless, and Qaraqoosh.
