The 1935 Yazidi revolt
took place in Iraq in October 1935.
The Iraqi government, under Yasin al-Hashimi
, crushed a revolt by the Yazidipeople
of Jabal Sinjar
against the imposition of conscription.
The Iraqi army, led by Bakr Sidqi
, reportedly killed over 200 Yazidi and imposed martial law throughout the region.
Parallel revolts opposing conscription also broke out that year in the northern (Kurdish populated) and mid-Euphrates
(majorly Shia populated) regions of Iraq.
The Yazidis of Jabal Sinjar constituted the majority of Iraqi Yazidi population - the third largest non-Muslim minority within the kingdom.
In 1939, the region of Jabal Sinjar was once again put under military control, together with the Shekhan District
