Most Yazidis men are led quickly to a number of specific locations, areas known by neighbors to be places of execution (for example, dry irrigation wells). ISIS often check each boy for the presence of a beard or hair under their arms to separate the men from the boys. The selected men, thus confirmed as men, are usually put to death.

Said, 23 years old, is a survivor of a mass shooting of Yazidi men by ISIS units. He received five bullets in the back but managed to flee and went back to Sinjar.
