Crimes Against Kurds

 
A collection of videos, describing and showing some of the events as the Iraqi forces / Iranian backed militia invaded on 16th October, 2017, 3 weeks after an independence referendum for Bashur, Iraqi Kurdistan, was held on 25th September, 2017, resulting in 92.73% of votes in favour of independence, with a turnout of 72.16% of registered voters. The invasion marked a major set-back in Kurdish hopes for an independent nation as the KRG has lost 40% of land under its jurisdiction and their main source of revenue, the Kirkuk oil fields. As a result, the KRG was now reliant on an annual budget from the central Iraqi government. The KRG, was also made to sign a handwritten pledge not to seek independence again as a precondition for the end of the conflict.
