    Within 45 minutes


    Once upon a time, in an ages there when butchers and decapitator ruled in the many parts of earth. There was a town, that green mountains are surrounding it. After the heavy wintry raining and snowing, all people in this town waiting for rise the spring. The folks engaged about their daily careers. The children played in the streets. Before the peoples town start to eat the lunch meal, suddenly the sun is disappearing. The sky’s color changing into gray. The strange noisiest sounds blowing out inhabitants minds. But there is a wonderful aroma diffusing in entire town. It’s like an apples and fruits aroma. That is not a story of (The Snow white and witches) that is not a Hollywood movie. That is a sacrificing of a nation for gaining democracy and peace.

    Near 25 years ago, in March 16, 2014 Iraqi forces killed near five thousand Kurdish people by using chemical weapons on the Kurdish town of Halabja within 45 minutes. The Iraqi air force used a variety of chemical against the town: nerve agents like VX, Sarin and tabun.
    Nowadays, some of the bombs which were used are displayed at the museum in Halabja. Many are equipped with internal fans, which were used to mix the chemicals together.

    Halabja is a city in Iraqi Kurdistan and the capital of Halabja Governorate, located about 150 miles (240km) north-east of Bagdad and 8-10 miles from the Iranian border. After 26 years, the Kurdistan regional government, (KRG) deicide Hlabja becomes the province from the town.
