Iraqi cavalry rescues some Yazidis from ISIS

CNN reports that many Yazidis were rescued from Mount Sinjar by Iraqi army helicopters, video link here, Despite its incompetence, apparently the Iraqi Army was up to this task.

Many people reported families being broken, and not everyone was allowed to board.  Only a small percentage could be rescued now.

Despite the range of artillery held by ISIS and captured from the US, apparently no US humanitarian planes have had any problems.

There is also an exodus of people (Christians) from parts of Syria into Kurdistan in Iraq.   Some have had to cross into Syria from Sinjar and back to the Kurdish area in the far north.
