BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 A.M.) – The Amna Suraka National Museum in the northern Iraqi city of Sulaymaniyah has dedicated a space to war victims of the so-called Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL).
Named ‘Museum for the Martyrs in the War against ISIS,’ the section exhibits mannequins and photos of Kurdish Peshmerga and YPG (People’s Protection Units), soldiers who died fighting IS in Iraq and Syria.
The Amna Suraka National Museum is located in the former headquarters of the Iraqi ‘Mukhabarat’ – the intelligence agency of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.
The Iraqi ‘Mukhabarat’ (Intelligence agency in Arabic) used the location for the imprisonment and alleged torture of Iraq’s Kurdish prisoners.
