THE STATE OF ASSYRIA
The Assyrian independence movement is a movement guided by the Assyrian people for independence in their historical homeland of northern Iraq, northeastern Syria, southeastern Turkey, and northwestern Iran. The City of Mosul had a sizable Assyrian presence prior to the takeover and forced expulsion of the Assyrian population by the Islamic State in 2014. Atrocities followed the ISIS invasion.
