Kurds destroyed 'thousands' of Arab homes in Iraq: Amnesty

A handout picture from Amnesty International on January 19, 2016 shows destroyed homes in the village of Barzanke in Iraq's northeastern Diyala provinceKurdish forces have destroyed thousands of homes in northern Iraq in an apparent attempt to uproot Arab communities, Amnesty International said Wednesday. The rights group said the destruction took place after Kurdish forces captured areas from the Islamic State jihadist group, which overran swathes of territory north and west of Baghdad in 2014. Destruction and theft of property has been a frequent occurence in the war against IS, angering residents whose support security forces may need to hold recaptured areas.
