Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. First Kurdish Iraqi War was a tribal Kurdish uprising, lead by Mustafa Barzani, in an attempt to establish independent Kurdish state in north Iraq. After the military coup by Abdul Karim Qasim in 1958, Barzani was invited by Qasim to return from exile, where he was greeted with a hero's welcome. As part of the deal arranged between Qasim and Barzani, Qasim had promised to give the Kurds regional autonomy in return for Barzani's support for his policies. Meanwhile, during 1959-1960, Barzani became the head of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), which was granted legal status in 1960.show more
