President Masoud Barzani; consider it necessary to extend my thanks to the masses of Erbil, Harir, and Soran who took part in those dark days with a spirit of Kurdish brotherhood and masculinity and sympathized with and helped the Barzanis

President Barzani's message on the thirty-eighth anniversary of Anfal against the Barzani's In the name of Allah, the most merciful, most gracious Thirty-eight years have passed since a major crime was committed by the former Iraqi regime. Thirty-eight years ago, on a day like this one, the Baathist regime brutalized more than eight thousand Barzani men, young and old (from the age of nine to the elderly age of ninety). In the deserts of southern Iraq, the crime of mass murder was carried out brutally. This crime was one of the series of grievances that the people of Kurdistan were subjected to, from the displacement of twelve thousand young Faili Kurds, the Anfal operations carried out in Garmyan, and the bombing of Halbaja and many other areas with chemical weapons, to the Arabization and deportation campaigns, terrorist attacks, and the commission of the most heinous crimes against our Yazidi brothers. In memory of the Anfal Barzanis, I consider it necessary to extend my thanks to the masses of Erbil, Harir, and Soran who took part in those dark days with a spirit of Kurdish brotherhood and masculinity and sympathized with and helped the Barzanis. I would like to thank the families of Anfal, especially the mothers and prominent women who, for many years, endured the tragedies of waiting and the torment of losing loved ones. They became a model of steadfastness and valor, and who raised their children with pride and loftiness of high morals, cordiality with Barzani’s approach. That crime committed against the Barzanis, and all the crimes committed against the people of Kurdistan were because they were Kurds defending freedom. The enemies' goal was to break the will to defend freedom and undermine the Kurdish people's spirit in Kurdistan. But the will of our people was much stronger than violence, intimidation, genocide, and Anfal. The result was the victory of high will of our people, and the defeat and shame of the enemies. Therefore, this lesson must become a lesson for the enemies of the people of Kurdistan and they should abandon the chauvinistic mentality and denial towards the oppressed Kurdish nation. Masoud Barzan July 31, 2021
