when Turkey was allied with Germany, the territory was captured by British forces.
In 1920 Iraq was placed under a League of Nations mandate, administered by the UK. In 1921 Amir Faisal ibn Hussain, a member of the Hashemite dynasty of Arabia, was proclaimed King of Iraq, and his brother, Abdullah, was proclaimed Emir of neighbouring Transjordan, also administered by the United Kingdom under a League of Nations mandate.
The two new monarchs were sons of Hussain (Hussein) ibn Ali, the Sharif of Mecca, who had proclaimed himself King of the Hijaz (now part of Saudi Arabia) in 1916.
Relations with the Syrian Government deteriorated after a younger generation of Baathists seized power in Syria in 1970. A bitter rivalry existed thereafter between Syrian and Iraqi Baathists.
Relations with Syria improved in October 1978, when President Assad of Syria visited Baghdad. Plans were announced for eventual complete political and economic union of the two countries.
In mid-1990 the Iraqi Government criticized countries (principally Kuwait and the UAE) which had persistently produced petroleum in excess of the quotas imposed by OPEC.

Iraq, A Republic since the 1958 coup d'etat that ended the reign of King Faisal II, became a sovereign, independent state in 1932. Although the modern state, the Republic of Iraq, is quite young, the history of the land and its people dates back more than 5,000 years. Indeed, Iraq contains the world's valuableest known archaeological sites. Here, in ancient Mesopotamia -the land between the rivers, the first civilization-that of Sumerappeared in the Near East. contempt the millennium separating the two epochs, Iraqi history displays a continuity shaped by adaptation to the ebbings and flowings of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. Allowed to flow unchecked, the rivers wrought destruction in terrible floods that inundated whole towns. When the rivers were controlled by irrigation dikes and other waterworks, the land became extremely fertile. Al Anbar Al Basrah Al Muthanna Al Qadisiyah ... AskBabyNames @ 2008 MapZones

English Contact IHP Home Objectives ... Links The Iraq History Project (IHP) gathers and analyzes personal narratives from victims, their families, witnesses, perpetrators and others regarding human rights violations committed during Saddam Hussein’s regime. These testimonies document the experience of torture, massacres, assassinations, rape, chemical weapons attacks, disappearances, and other acts of systematic repression.
The IHP is one of the largest independent human rights data collection and analysis projects in the world. The IHP has gathered over 7,000 testimonies from throughout Iraq which have been entered into a secure, searchable database. The project is managed by the International Human Rights Law Institute of DePaul University College of Law in Chicago, IL, USA and run by an all-Iraqi in-country staff. At peak levels, the project involved over 60 interviewers, supervisors, analysts, data entry staff, and administrators. A selection of testimonies and some preliminary analysis are presented on this website, and have been made publicly available in publications and on the radio. Project staff are currently drafting the IHP final report.
The IHP’s victim-centered historical record of past violations is designed to facilitate national reconciliation, encourage the implementation of policies that assist victims of past and present violations, and help build the foundations for the defense and protection of fundamental human rights in Iraq.

Last updated : Nov 2009 Iraq History Mesopotamia , the core of modern Iraq, was at the heart of the Sumerian, Babylonian and Assyrian empires between the 7 th century BC and AD 100. After short spells under the rule of the Romans and the Sassanids (a minor regional power at the time), the Arabs conquered Iraq in AD 633. The Arab Caliphate had control of the territory during the late 12 th and early 13 th centuries before being displaced by the Mongols.
At the end of the 14 th century Iraq, Azerbaijan to the north, Persia and parts of Syria , Turkey and Transcaucasia were conquered and subsumed into the empire ruled by Timur (also known as Tamerlane). The Turks were the next imposing invaders, ruling from the early 1500's until the collapse of the Ottoman Empire at the end of World War I.

Iraq History
Iraq history is as follows: It gained its independence from British rule in 1932. Back in 637 AD, Islamic Arab armies occupied Iraq. Baghdad, along with Al-Kufa and Mosul, became the most important cities at this time in the Arab world. The rulers back then were called caliphs and the first Abbasid caliph took power in 749 AD. Baghdad continued to grow in size and popularity. In 1258, the grandson of Genghis Khan, whose name was Hulagu, destroyed Baghdad and killed the last Abbasid caliph. By 1638, the Ottomans took over the rule and changed Iraq history. In the 1800's, the Iraqi people began to resent other countries ruling Iraq. Then the British government took possession of the country in 1920. This allowed the country's independence in 1932 as stated above. After Iraq gained its independence, it appeared to be up for grabs to a lot of groups who tried to take control of it with various coups.
