New documentary sheds painful light on plight of former Yazidi ISIS child soldiers in Iraq

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – When Barzan awoke to the sound of screams in the early hours of the morning of August 3, 2014, the 13-year-old ran to feed his doves for a final time before fleeing his home, never to return. As Islamic State (ISIS) militants attacked Shingal, he was captured along with around 6,000 members of his Yazidi community, whereupon he was taken into captivity and forced to fight for the so-called caliphate for the remainder of his blighted childhood.
