Christians and Yazidis hope that the military campaign to recapture Mosul, launched in October 2016, will be brought to a successful conclusion and thus enable them to return to their settlements in the Nineveh Plains and the Sinjar District, which were captured by the IS in the summer of 2014. However, it is a matter of debate whether a military victory over the IS and the recapture of Mosul will provide sufficient grounds for Christians and Yazidis to return to their traditional settlements, as they hope to do, and so remain in Iraq.
