22 years ago from today was the day of the Iraqi invasion for Kuwait, I still remember that sad black Thursday 2nd of August 1990, I was a child back then. We awoke in the morning with the Iraqi military copters hovering over Kuwait city and with the noise of distant clashes and shooting and smoke in the sky, we didn’t know what was happening until we heard it on the news.
Last year I visited “Not To Forget Museum” that recreates the horror of the Iraqi invasion through a guided tour with special lighting, sounds effects and narration.
Today I visited Qurain Martyrs Museum, it’s a house where the final massacre between Kuwaiti resistance and Iraqi invaders took place, that was on the 24th of February 1990 (just before the liberation of Kuwait). I found a video for Kuwaiti resistance battling Iraqi invaders.
While walking inside the house, I could almost feel what happened seeing the damaged walls and broken windows, truly sad but it represents a historical monument. I recommend visiting the house in case you didn’t, there’s a lot to see and learn.
