In Iraq, “In 1988, as part of the Arabisation policy, to clear Kurds out of the country just north of Baghdad, there were several chemical weapons attacks on Kurdish villages in which 100,000 or more people were killed, including one on Halabja [on March 16, 1988] in which several thousand were eliminated in one day.”
