راپه‌رین ٣-٣-١٩٩١

Kurdish children and their parents await nightfall 02 May 1991 at the pass of Avagusi before continuing their descent towards the refugee camp of Zakho. Kurdish families are fleeing from their homes to the “safety” of the mountains along the Turkish-Iraqi and Iranian borders, with little to protect them from the cold as fighting intensifies between Saddam Hussein’ soldiers and the Kurdish peshmerga guerrillas. Several thousand British, American and French troops moved 22 April into northern Iraq to prepare camps as part of operation “Provide Comfort” for the 500,000 Kurdish refugees.
