Kaveh Kazemi arrived in Baghdad on 14 February, 1991, less than a month after combat to force Iraq out of Kuwait began. Being an Iranian photographer and a freelance photojournalist for international media, he was granted rare access, joining a limited number of foreign reporters on the ground to cover yet another deadly crisis in the Persian Gulf. Kazemi's eyewitness account of Operation Desert Storm offers a glimpse into how bombardments by the US-led coalition forces killed civilians and caused widespread destruction of Iraq's infrastructure while Saddam Hussein's policies brought the country to its knees, forcing people, including many Kurds, to flee their homeland.
