A Peshmerga soldier passes near an ammunition deposit of the terrorist group Ansar-al-Islam destroyed by the coalition forces before the invasion of Iraq, Halabja region, Kurdistan, 2003/05/29.
This Islamic radical group, with possible connections to Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, has a multinational composition, similar to the net Al Qaeda. It had taken, before the war, an enclave with 4000 civil and several villas, close to the Iranian border, having imposed a fundamentalist regime type Taliban. Until they have been expelled, they spread the terror in the area and made countless atrocities against the civilians.
