KUWAIT CITY, Feb 26,: On the occasion of the national days, the Kuwaiti people recall with pride their resistance to the 1990 blatant Iraqi aggression and their unity with the sagacious leadership to restore the homeland’s sovereignty and freedom. Echoes of “Allaho Akbar” chants on February 26, 1991, still resonate until the present day.

Kuwait Air Force and Coalition jets fly over the burning oil wells in Kuwait during the liberation war for Kuwait in 1991. All the oil wells were set on fire by the retreating Iraqi forces.

In this glorious day, the “Desert Storm” liberation operation was launched and resulted in the historic event, the liberation of Kuwait. At the political level, the late Amir Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al- Jaber Al-Sabah and the Crown Prince and Prime Minister, at the time, Sheikh Saad Al-Abdullah Al- Salem Al-Sabah, played a major role in rallying Arab and international support for the Kuwaiti legitimacy to defend the national rights. The Kuwaiti people remember the prime role of the GCC countries that gave Kuwait all types of support and hosted Kuwaiti citizens.

Moreover, among the great memories was the historic stance by the late US president George Bush (senior) who pledged to restore Kuwait’s independence and succeeded in persuading the US Senate to employ military might to free the country from the occupation claws, on January 21, 1991. The Kuwaitis continue to eulogize the martyrs who sacrificed their blood for Kuwait’s sake during the fl agrant aggression and participation of sisterly and friendly countries in the liberation of the country.
