Turkey - Kurdish Refugees - Boy whose face was burned by Napalm dropped by Saddam Husseins forces

At the end of the first Persian Gulf War in April 1991 the Kurdish people of northern Iraq rose up against Saddam Hussein but the insurrection was quickly and brutally suppressed by the Iraqi Republican Guard and fearing for their lives hundreds of thousands of Kurds fled from Northern Iraq into the mountains bordering Turkey where they were held by the Turkish army in a massive makeshift refugee camp near Isikveren.There was no food no sanitation no fuel and the situation soon grew into a grave humanitarian crisis.
