Kurdo - April 30, 2000
This beautiful hillside village is almost completely rebuilt by its returning survivors after its destruction and depopulation of its people by Iraqi regime's army before the Gulf War.
Beeara, a nearby big village to Balkha Kurdo - April 30, 2000
Unfortunately, that day I took this picture a dust storm blowing from deserts south of Iraq was covering the sky in Kurdistan. In addition to that, fog made visibility even worse. Any how the misty village still shows the ancestral homes of Kurds in beloved Kurdistan.
