Ranya celebrates anniversary of the Kurdish uprising

Today, March 5, marks the 30th anniversary of the uprising of the people of Kurdistan, where thirty years ago today, the people of Kurdistan stood up against the oppression, injustice, and tyranny of the dictator Saddam Hussein and former Iraqi Baath regime.


The Kurdish uprising began from the town of Ranya, 131 km north of Sulaymaniyah, on March 5, 1991 and from there it spread to the other parts of the Kurdistan Region which later resulted in the establishment of the Kurdish Autonomous region and later forming of the Kurdistan Regional Government
