    The Mandaeans

    Read the wikipedia article at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandaeans for information on this fascinating yet obscure group of people.

    They are close cousins of the Assyrians/Chaldaeans. And like Assyrians, they have unfortunately faced persecution with their numbers in Iraq dwindling considerably following the invasion. The difference is that they are globally far fewer in number and their ancestral location is southern Mesopotamia, not northern Mesopotamia.

    Videos and pictures of these folks are rare. Im going to post them here:

    They are an interesting group. The Mandaean/Sabian sample on G25 are similar to other people from Iraq and the Levant. A two way mix between Anatolia/Levant_N and CHG/Iran_N.

    Target: Iraqi:Sabian01
    Distance: 2.8828% / 0.02882834

    There is some steppe in them too. Use Progress_En or Vonyuchka_En to find it. Khvlanynsk is another option(80% EHG like). Using pure EHG or Siberian I would not recommend because it depresses steppe and can make it appear almost noise-like. But yeah overall these guys are genetically in between Iranians and Levantines.
