Caught in the Crossfire:
Assyrians in North Iraq

Saturday, July 10, on Zoom
12:00pm to 1:00pm EST

Assyrians in northern Iraq have been caught in the decades of crossfire between Turkey and the PKK.


Join us for a live discussion with Mikhael Benjamin, minority rights expert and advocate from Nahla, as he unpacks the devastating impact on Assyrian populations as the conflict intensifies—notably in Nahla Valley and the Barwar region—as well as the failures of central and regional authorities in responding to this crisis. Live Q&A with attendees will follow.
