The British Parliament officially recognized Feb. 28 the al-Anfal campaign of Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi government as the “Kurdish genocide.”
Countries such as Sweden and Norway have previously recognized the Kurdish genocide.
According to Human Rights Watch, some 4,000 villages out of 4,655 were wiped out between April 1987 and August 1988, among which 250 had been attacked with chemical weapons. More than 1,700 schools, 2,450 mosques, as well as 27 churches were also destroyed.
