Several hundred members of the Yezidi-people have been killed by ISIS west of Mosul in Iraq, according to the Yezidi Progress Party and Iraqi officials.

ISIS killed 600 people in the Talafar district on Friday, according to ARA News.

Iraqi Vice President Osama al-Nujaifi describes the deaths as "horrific and barbaric".

Several thousand members of the Yezidi minority were taken prisoner by the terrorist organization IS last year.

Many have been held captive in Mosul, where IS is strong.

In the statement from the Yezidi Pogress Party, quoted by the Kurdish news website Shafaq News, the incident is condemned as "a heinous crime" and Iraqi forces are requested to help rescue the Yezidis who are still held captive by IS.

Last year up to 40,000 members of this minority group had sought refuge on Mount Sinjar in northern Iraq where they were surrounded by fundamentalist IS insurgents.

Thousands of Yezidis fled to the Kurdish-controlled part of northern Iraq after IS conquered areas around Sinjar where the Yezidis lived.

Hundreds of men were killed while several Yezedi women were held as sex slaves by ISIS.

Last August it became known that IS had killed 500 Yezidis and placed them in mass graves.
