Medal Of Suppressing The Rebellion In The North.

Nut Qami al-Isyian fi al-Shimal / Medal for Crushing the Northern Rebellion

While tension – and often armed tension – had been common between the Iraqi central government and the Kurds in northern Iraq ever since the formation of the modern Iraqi state after W.W.I (and had been a common destabilizing factor for Iraqi governments), open war had not been the habitual practice. The Kurds, in fact, had been ardent supporters of the 1958 revolution but, by September 1961, full-scale conflict had erupted with the Qasim government. A cease-fire was concluded only in 1964, and this war in the Kurdish north had been a major factor in the governmental shifts of that period.

Established: Law No. 7 of 1964.
Obverse: Circular 40-mm gilt medal, with a blue-enameled circle around the edge. In the center, three green-enameled mountain peaks with white-enameled snow caps against a blue-enameled sky. In front of the mountains, two guilt hands engage in a handshake. On a gilt scroll above, the Arabic legend “Al-Jamhuriyah al-Ir‘aqiah” or “The Republic of Iraq”. Suspended by a ring.
Reverse: Plain, with the Arabic legend “Nut Qami al-Isyian fi al-Shimal” or “Medal for Crushing the Rebellion in the North” at the lower edge.
Ribbon: 35 mm, six equal stripes (left to right): light blue, white, black, yellow, grey, and purple; 5 mm light blue, 5 mm white, 5 mm black, 5 mm yellow, 5 mm grey, 5 mm purple.
