19 years ago

I found those satellite images on this site.. 1st one was taken on 31 August 1990, the second was on 23 February 1991, and the last one on 14 November 1991.







Click on them to enlarge and u can clearly see the severe impact the invasion had on Kuwait's environment.. u can see the burning oil wells in the 2nd pic and the oil lakes resulting from those burning oil wells on the 3rd pic.

To everyone who has helped Liberating Kuwait, Thank you.
To the men and women of this country, Thank you for being strong and 3ala galb wa7id..

رب اجعل هذا البلد آمنا وابعد عنا كل مكروه
