The Anfal campaign is said to have cost the lives of 182,000 civilians. The Anfal campaign included the use of ground offensives, aerial bombing, systematic destruction of settlements, mass deportation, concentration camps, firing squads, and chemical warfare.

At the time of the Anfal campaign, Hussein Rashid al-Tikriti was deputy of operations for the Iraqi forces.
