    • Persian Gulf cease fire


      The Persian Gulf War had been a devastating conflict, with casualties mounting and cities reduced to rubble. On the 28th of February 1991, the announcement of a ceasefire has been met with both relief and uncertainty.

      The ceasefire was announced by the United Nations, after months of negotiations between the warring parties. The agreement called for an immediate cessation of hostilities, the withdrawal of troops, and the establishment of a demilitarized zone.

      Dubbed “Resolution 686”, the ending of the Persian-Gulf war saw 14,000 Coalition casualties, and a debated 175-300,000 Iraqi casualties.
