The 1935 Yazidi revolt took place in Iraq in October 1935.[1] The Iraqi government, under Yasin al-Hashimi, crushed a revolt by the Yazidi Kurds of Jabal Sinjar against the imposition of conscription.[1][2] The Iraqi army, led by Bakr Sidqi, reportedly killed over 200 Yazidi and imposed martial law throughout the region.[1] 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 second largest non-Muslim minority within the kingdom, and the largest heterodox Kurdish group in the province of Mosul.[2] In 1939, the region of Jabal Sinjar was once again put under military control, together with the Shekhan District.[2]
