Operation Iraqi Freedom Leaflets
This leaflet coded IZD027 warns the people of Iraq to stay away from sites where Saddam Hussein might hide military vehicles and personnel. School children visit the Shaheed (Martyrs Monument) at the front-right of the full-color leaflet. This quarter-billion dollar blue-tile monument commemorates the Iraqi dead in the Iraq-Iran war. At the left of the leaflet, Coalition jets are shown firing rockets at Iraqi tanks hiding near the monument. Coalition aircraft dropped similar leaflets showing Iraqi weapons hiding near mosques and in schoolyards during the Persian Gulf War of 1990-1991.
