SINJAR (Public Radio of Armenia) — The Armenian St. Mary Church in Sinjar, Iraq has been completely destroyed, Arevelk.am reports, quoting its sources in Erbil.

According to the reports, tens of skeletons, thought to be those of Yazidi residents of the region, were recently found in the vicinities of the church.

The Armenian population had left the region before it was invaded by the Islamic State. The city of Sinjar in the north of Iraq is considered the main center of the Yazidi community.
