The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) attacked the Yazidis who are a minority in Iraq, and this act concluded in the crime of genocide in August 2014. As a result of this brutal attack, they became internally displaced people (IDP) in the camps in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI). The purpose of this study is to assess the role of coping strategies on social networking sites addiction (SNSs) with mediation of perceived social support. To this end, a cross-sectional study was conducted among 611 Yazidi IDP adults (males = 304, females = 307). The age of the participants ranged from 18-60 years old a mean age of 27.07 and SD = 9.13. A convenient sampling technique for gathering the desired data, and descriptive and inferential statistical analyses for analyzing the variables were conducted. The results indicated that most Yazidis use emotion- focused coping to deal with their stressors and 50.4% of the study participants reported high levels of SNSs addiction especially among male compared with their female counterparts. The findings of the study also showed that the subscales of family and friends support mediate the role of coping strategies on SNSs addiction. In general, the major findings of this inquiry suggest that the situation of the Yazidi IDP adults with regard to SNSs addiction is a cause for worry, especially among men. Therefore, necessary actions in terms of psychoeducation and awareness need to be placed.
