Also the Kurds have historically often been victims of oppression and genocides such as the Al Anfal campaign in the 1980:s in Iraq that killed approximately 182 000 people and the Dersim Genocide in Turkey. Through this oppression the kurds have fought for their rights, with their own military called the Peshmarga.
